Microsoft will rip off BlackBerry and take the software and patents only. Later, it will omit BlackBerry brand for good.
Just recall how Microsoft destroyed the best legend brand of phone manufacturer

Na ga happen. The only suitable purchasers should be Apple and Tesla, for the QNX stack in automobiles. Microsoft will bury QNX for their own Microsoft SYNC, which failed miserably and almost destroyed Ford Motor Company.
Chinese companies will not be allowed to acquire Blackberry. Lenovo expressed interest in the past, but were told it wouldn't happen.
So, rule out ALL Chinese companies. What you have left is US companies and Samsung (S.Korean).
These rumours are likely baseless though and Blackberry is better off creating strategic partnerships instead of being bought out.
Microsoft should do it. Blackberry will rise which is always under estimated cux of Apps availability while Microsoft have their own store which is Quite huge now over 500,000 Apps for sure.
