RUMOR: IBM Interested In RIM’s Enterprise Division

Posted Aug 10, 2012

Yesterday I wrote about how Samsung is not interested in licensing RIM, but apparently IBM in purchasing RIM in some form.  According to sources with Bloomberg, IBM has “made an informal approach” to buy RIM’s Enterprise Services unit.  RIM held off because they want to wait and see what happens with BlackBerry 10.  I don’t know whether this was a smart move or not because RIM seems to be putting all of their eggs in one basket.  There is also a chance that IBM will not give an offer like this again.
