    Apple maybe the one buying RIM in the end and access all its business side this way, get all RIM's patents and get the QNX business too (cars, etc.). They have the money to do it.
    What do you think Blackberries?

    If this did happen, I doubt they would but I agree there are some advantages for them. I think Apple would:

    No more BlackBerry handsets.
    No BB10 (components will be used in iOS)

    Everything will be intergrated into iOS, everyone out at RIM, and the end of the keyboard smartphone.

    At first I thought the regulatory hurdles would be too much for Apple. But then I realized, they seem to have a way to keep politicians and regulators out of their way. I'm just saying.

    RIM is a company that has behaved ethically all the way and Apple is, in my view, a company that has not. Price fixing with e-books, restricting in-app stores for e-book competitors, price fixing with carriers, etc.

    I will always be a BlackBerry supporter. I've seen what Microsoft did and I'm watching Apple follow in their footsteps. No thanks.

    I guess you don't have that much common sense to post a link stating your post either. Good luck with life.

    Doubtful. Apple could always license some patents though, like the LED, that would be handy.

    How dare you make such a blasphemous suggestion! Its like abandoning your car in detroit (detroit being apple, and the car being blackberry); dissasembled, chopped apart and sold for crack. RIM, with thorsten steering the ship, isn't nave enough to let them be sold to (hold your tongue and say...) Apple

    If iPhone got a GOOD LED that would make me look more seriously at it. I love my LED.
