If you had a split of second knowledge about Blackberry you must had decided to keep your mouth shut rather than proving the world that you are a Ostrich .
They better sell while they still can as Blackberry are bleeding bad. Just take a look at Blackberry passport... WTF ? How about the Blackberry classic ? - something that was done years ago and way overpriced ! Better take the offer before Blackberry becomes Blackburied....
Remember, BEATS who wanted to join Apple (not Apple want Beats) trade for 3.2 Billion. ANd you think BB a known trademark and respected one...will be less than
20b$...in your dreaaams

I'd wager that Tizen is potentially a good deal more secure, too.
Samsung can't afford to buy Blackberry because it will not be 7 or 8 billion $
if they will really want the BB is about 20 or 30 billion $
Samsung needs its own OS that can compete both Android and iOS with good security. Already it was doing it with Knox (enterprise security). Tizen OS is non-starter....may be this can give good hardware-softwware synergy
Probably not a surprise when one considers that Android leaks like a sieve. There is only Blackberry and Apple for the serious corporate user, and Governments.
They must have discovered their executives mutual love for Apple products:
Samsung can afford Blackberry + microsoft. Dont underestimate samsung. They build ships, military products, insurance, bank, cars, electronics, economy of south korea.
gelo, 15 Jan 2015BB is a unique OS. Samsung Can't Accumulate it easily.No, but they could certainly use those patents! Just like the acquisitions of Nokia and Motorolam, that's the main purpose.
AnonD-278523, 15 Jan 2015Samsung won't afford that..You're wrong.
They can afford that because Samsung is not a small company.
Samsung is the biggest chaebol in the world.
This might be a rumour, might not be, in any case Samsung has more than enough money to buy BlackBerry, I just hope they don't go in and buy Sony's Mobile division.
If Samsung will buy something that may be Sony Handset division which is probably on sales now
I'm sensing a Sony-Blackberry Merger which would be great for both companies since both mobile makers are struggling in sales.. what do you think?
