    We will be speculating. BlackBerry will not be commenting. You know...the usual faire.

    I think the bidders, whoever they are must show thenselves due to the FF imposed date.

    If there are no bidders, then the FF deal will proceed with BOD approvals and then shareholder voting. I'm sure PW has some kind of trick up his sleeve to "incent" the voting such as, a threat to dump his 10% holdings in one day, potentially sending the stock to historic lows. However, you have to keep in mind that in the product cycle, the coporate buying has yet to appear due to delays related to enterprise certification and so, in my view we're in a kind of trough. PW fully understands this and has timed his bid very well indeed.

    I have no doubts he will threaten to and follow through to destroy the whole company unless his "deal of the century" is approved by all concerned.

    He has to find the financing first.

    My guess is Fairfax will say they're not yet finished with their due diligence, and the stock will drop below $8.

    The fairfax deal will go through, it's been a done deal for months. The sell off will start in the following weeks.

    I believe Fairfax will have no alternative than to say they found items in the due diligence that require further study, or that require them to drop their $9 a share offer. I do not believe there will be any competing bids for the company.

    Here's what i think will happen...
    No one will want to buy BB including Fairfax. BB will continue to trade as a public company burning through it's cash.
    Eventually the stock price will be so low that the only saving grace for the company is to break it apart and sell it off in parts

    Apple iPhone touting CrackBerry Kevin is announced as the sole owner of BlackBerry. Stranger things have happened in the history of this company and in Kevin's life for that matter. Oh yeah, at the announcement CrackBerry Kevin will be sporting his gold chained BlackBerry PlayBook.

    Well, this might have an impact (or not -- largely due to 'unrealized' losses, it states.)

    TORONTO, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd , the Canadian property and casualty insurer run by investment guru Prem Watsa, reported a third-quarter loss on Thursday, due largely to unrealized losses in its investment portfolio.

    The Toronto-based company, which is leading a $4.7 billion bid for smartphone maker Blackberry, posted a net loss of $571.7 million, or $29.02 a share, for the quarter ended Sept. 30.

    That compared with a year-before profit of $33.4 million, or 84 cents a share.

    Did I miss something?

    Perhaps I'm mistaken (possible), but wasn't the push for a November sale a bit AFTER the initial Fairfax bid? I was under the impression that BBRY was trying to put pressure on potential biddders. When did it come about that Fairfax had an early November deadline?

    Eye of newt and toe of moth... what will happen on the fourth...?

    Amazon will release the new Kindle Paperwhite 3G with whispernet in the UK.

    That will steal the tech section of the "news" from anything happening at RIM. In the UK at least...

    Oh wait... that's happening on the 6th...

    That means the tech section of the "news" won't feature anything in the UK. They will be saving themselves for the Kindle Paperwhite 2 days later...

    Fairfax deal will go through and there will be massive floods from all the short sellers tears.
    Yes, their tears of joy as they cover from the $30s.

    Or do you seriously think there are pros out there who shorted this stock below $9?
