CSHARP123 writes: WSJ's anonymous sources indicates that MS and Nokia casually considered to bid on Research in Motion Ltd (RIM). The talks outcome is not clear. The Journal suggests that this wasn't anything more than a simple idea that came up at one of the regular meetings between senior executives from all three companies — perhaps it could have even been just a casual talk—but one wonders how does Microsoft and Nokia executives think to profit on this take over. May be RIM provides a good backdoor entry for MS in the enterprise space for its Windows Phone 7. Recently, Amazon was also considering to bid on RIM. It is interesting to see who will gobble up RIM.
If you hype something and it succeeds, you're a genius -- it wasn't a
hype. If you hype it and it fails, then it was just a hype.
