    Blackberry is officially "for Sale" and Yahoo is one of the interested buyers, offering $1.2 billion dollars.

    Interesting, but the price seems very low considering how much capital BlackBerry has.

    That actually wouldn't be a bad match to be honest, if the services are well integrated but Yahoo! doesn't strike me as the type of company that wants to manage their own mobile platform and hardware.

    But a Yahoo!, Flickr, Tumblr phone would probably appeal to some people.

    Listen it's better than nothing and if it works, then lets do it! And it keeps Blackberry alive and kicking! Better to be a social network company than HP, IBM, etc..because they have no idea of what to do with a mobile company. Their just a bunch of PC makers that are hanging on themselves. I thought HP would be a good fit because they want back in the game but it looks like Android for them (unsuccessful; Slate 7 anyone?). It's all about the social media right now and connecting with them.

    I have no idea how serious this story is but let's assume it was real. I would predict the following: some negotiation upward on the price but the fact that the initial offer is less than the cash seems to me to indicate that they view ongoing operations as a liability rather than what they are buying. Yahoo I think has a history of buying companies for tech teams, shutting down their product and repurposing those programmers etc on something similar but not the same. So maybe use the cash to pay for shutting down the phone part and concentrating on BES to get Yahoo more enterprise access and BBM to help on the social network front. I don't see them making phones but who knows. It probably isn't real anyway.

    Heck no.
    Yahoo is company that's barely keeping its own head above water.
    And given its CEO snub of Blackberry in the past, I would only see Mayer going to town chopping up Blackberry however she see fit.

    We should try to get this source, the guy at the T-Mobile Kiosk and the homeless guy I met in Chicago to get together and tell us what the future will bring.

    ..the company I would hate to acquire BlackBerry is Yahoo.

    Maybe their CEO read the thread and decided to "express interest" just to spite CB nation. Lol.

    Hogwash! Marisa Mayer trying to acquire BB worth market cap over $6 Bil for $1.2 BIl. The reporter is smoking crack!

    I see Amazon, Nokia & Microsoft bid, or IBM & Lenovo bid as strategic buyers. Or else, going private with Prem Watsa orchestrating it.

    Doesn't make sense when the CEO was bad mouthing Blackberry saying it wasn't even a smart phone. I would not be happy if they did acquire BBRY.

    This got to be true coming from a 17 years old author who surely knows lots and has many insiders in both companies right?

    Did any one bother to read the author's bio?
