Well, industry insiders claim that the company's profits for the previous quarter exceeded investor estimates, which, apparently, immediately translated into a few major players considering buying BlackBerry. Reportedly, Microsoft, Xiaomi, Huawei, and Lenovo are all among the aforementioned potential investors, with Microsoft even having requested investment companies to evaluate a potential acquisition deal.
Of course, none of this means that any of the companies is actually ready to go through with any type of acquisition just yet, and we're not sure that BlackBerry is ready to give in just yet. In fact, with such huge potential investors beating around the bush, CEO John Chen may actually reinforce the idea that he is on the right track.
