We all knew it might come to this, but never exactly knew how soon. Well, it turns out that BlackBerry is looking for a buyer, right now. A special committee has been assembled in Waterloo, Canada for BlackBerry to find the right strategic company to merge with or be purchased by, since everything they’ve tried: a tablet, a new classic BlackBerry, a new touchscreen BlackBerry, new operating system, and a company name change didn’t help the company out.
Of course, this doesn’t confirm anything, just as they put it in a statement:
“There can be no assurance that this exploration process will result in any transaction. The Company does not currently intend to disclose further developments with respect to this process, unless and until its Board of Directors approves a specific transaction or otherwise concludes the review of strategic alternatives.”
But as it stands, we know all we need to know: BlackBerry cannot keep living on this way, and they need help in order to survive. Privatizing like Dell did isn’t going to work, either.
