Blackberry Rumors

with one comment

There are a few rumors floating around about the RIM Blackberrys. First up, RIM is said to be working on an advanced smartphone with 5Mpxl camera, 1MB RAM and ‘near HD quality’ screen according to Boy Genius Report. While the form factor is not clear yet, this phone is suppose to be a cross between the Blackberry Storm and Blackberry Bold. RIM is also said to be working on second and third generation of Blackberry Storm devices.

However, the bigger rumor is that Microsoft might be looking to buy RIM, according to Reuters. Some analysts that Reuters talked to think that Microsoft has a standing offer to RIM at $50 a share which amounts to about $28 million. However, these rumors have been raised in the past and no deal has materialized.  Given the market conditions and recent misses by RIM both related to Bold and their quarterly earnings outlook, though, this deal would make sense. The difficult part might be getting the two co-CEOs of RIM on board.
