    What do you guys think? What if the offer was $30, 40, 50, 60, or 80?

    Nope, anyone with a smartphone platform who buys BBRY will either destroy BB10, or they will regulate it to some sort of business only deployment, which is dumb, selling out would be the easy way out, and overtime the less profitable way. Pure and simple.

    $100. nothing less, maybe more.

    As of now, the BB10 platform and the Z10 (and soon the Q10) is a top end phone, it's just a shame the lack of apps is what people first look at as a deciding factor for a platforms success.

    Why would you want MS apple or google to buy BB?

    What would we gain from that?

    Lets see where the stock is after the 1st full quarter of BB10 sales and get some guidance for next quarter. Then discuss valuation. There is a lot of shorts that need to cover.

    If you're in at $15, to NOT sell at $70 is to be way too greedy for words. That's almost a 400% gain. At least sell half to lock in the gains - remember, the stock market is about making money.

    I think the largest premium that a company has ever been purchased for, relative to it's publicly traded share value has been 50 or 60 pct. You guys are talking about a premium of over 350%. I get that most people here don't get how mergers and acquisitions work, but still the levels of delusion on Crack berry continue to amaze and amuse me.

    You are talking about another foreign takeover and I don't think the Canadian government would look at that too favorably even if it were our buddies to the south. I also think we will have to wait until Q1 of 2014 to see how well BlackBerry is doing, that is, after all new devices have been on sale for a while.

    If the question is a deal for BBerry at $70......then I would absolutely support it.

    Why would I not support a deal that would make myself and all the other shareholders a big bag of money ?

    Isn't that what investing is all about ?

    I would support only Microsoft/Oracle or IBM; I'm not greedy. $70 will do it.

    I think it was maybe for more of a discussion of whether you'd want to be taken out by those specific companies vs the actualy numerical metric. Kind of like at what point would u let a competitor take out RIM. Vs at what point would you sell your shares.

    i believe acquisitions work off revenue multiples, goodwill and tangible assets.

    I think this is a hypothetical question for fun. In reality, it will not happen - not even an offer for $30/share. In reality, BlackBerry has made it clear, they are NOT for sale, and will swallow a poison pill if there were an unsolicited takeover attempt.

    This thread, I think, is the same as: Would you drive a 1971 Pinto for the rest of your life for $500,000. Hypothetical, will not happen, but fun to discuss.

    Relax a little

    in that case you should mortgage everything, max your credit cards and buy BBRY... are you doing it? if you can buy something for $14 and not sell at $70, then you should buy every last share available.

    See there will be no poison pill. If this board doesnt sell at hypothetical 70 or even 50, they will be in court for the rest of their lives.

    The question is not really valid since any company planning a buyout would buy it just above current stock price. With it being at $14 right now. $20 is likely, $30 is possible, $40 less likely, $70 is near impossible.

    If someone said they'd buyout the company at $70 right now. BlackBerry (as well as all the major institutional owners) would probably do it in a blink of an eye.

    That being said, it's not likely to happen. And any company doing this will probably cause the "BlackBerry" brand to disappear into whoever acquires them.

    Hell yes I would support it. And if they shut down BlackBerry after buying it out I would be ok with crying over it in my new Ferrari.
