However, it has to be noted that Lenovo itself has now stepped up to make it clear it has not declared anything particular on an intent to acquire RIM. Moreover, the company stressed comments of its CFO were taken out of context.
"We are looking at all opportunities - RIM and many others. We'll have no hesitation if the right opportunity comes along,"Wong Wai Ming, CFO of Lenovo said earlier, but that comment might have been taken out of context.

We are aware that Lenovo’s CFO [Wong] Waiming was speaking broadly about M&A strategy in a recent interview.
