Default BlackBerry exploring possibiliy of selling the company

BlackBerry to explore possible sale of company - Kitchener-Waterloo - CBC News

Quote:
The announcement comes amid unconfirmed reports that the Waterloo, Ont.-based company may go private.
A going-private move would result in one or more investors buying out other BlackBerry shareholders and delisting the stock from public markets.

LOL. let me open the bidding at $5.

Edit: Wait! I withdraw that bid. My $5 would probably buy me a few billion in debt.

This is really sad to see. Although I'm not much of a BB pusher, I hate to see such a downturn for a Canadian Company that's been a staple in the mobile market for as long as I can remember. I'd also hate to see a private sale to an American buyer that may opt to pack it up and move it south. Not to mention all the people in Waterloo worried for their jobs these days. (Over and above all those who have already lost jobs)

Yah, I don't want them to fall, but I can objectively also say they just aren't that good to compete with the bigger players anymore. They should have never tried to move away from what they did well which was servicing corporate
