Google and Cisco Amongst Bidders Lined Up To Consider BlackBerry Purchase
As of now, Google, Cisco and enterprise software outfit SAP are all mulling bids for parts or all of BlackBerry. If any of these were to pass muster, BlackBerry would in turn cancel the plan to take itself private by selling to Fairfax Financial Holdings for $4.7 billion. In fact, even Intel and Samsung seem to be longshots here, but those two are named amongst the many who are reportedly considering submitting bids "by early next week."
It's not certain if any of the interested parties will actually submit bids, but if they do, they'll no doubt get a killer deal on a company that would've cost 10x more just a decade ago.
