BlackBerry starts the layoff process as 300 are fired
BlackBerry has agreed to be taken private in a $4.7 billion deal led by its biggestr stockholder, Fairfax Financial. In addition, another financial firm, Cerberus Capital Management has been sniffing around the company as well. Perhaps more interesting is the name of the tech companies looking at BlackBerry. Those names include Samsung, LG, SAP, Microsoft and Cisco.
Besides the handset and tablet business, BlackBerry offers software based services to the enterprise which companies like Google, SAP and Microsoft might find interesting.
