Submission + - Blackberry Probably for Sale (

vikingpower writes: Today, Blackberry ( fomerly Research In Motion or RIM ) announced, in corporate-speak, basically that the company is for sale. In 5 years time, Blackberry stock market capitalisation plunged from $ 84 billion to less than $ 5 billion. The fact that Blackberry is basically going up for sale is further supported by unconfirmed rumours that Prem Watsa, who is on majority stock holder Fairfax Financial's board of directors, is stepping down from the Blackberry board.
