Rumor: Microsoft still considering BlackBerry for possible acqusition
Is Microsoft still in a buying mood after announcing a deal Monday to acquire Nokia's smartphone business? That's the possibility that has been brought up in a new Bloomberg article, which claims that Microsoft could be interested in buying troubled mobile phone maker BlackBerry.
The article claims, via unnamed sources, that Microsoft "is keeping an eye" on BlackBerry for a possible deal. The Canadian company announced a few weeks ago it was looking at "strategic alternatives," which may include selling all or part of its business. Bloomberg's sources claim that there is still a large enterprise market for BlackBerry devices that could draw Microsoft's interest as it seeks to expand its smartphone business.
