Lenovo says RIM acquisition reports were taken out of context, it was speaking about acquisitions in
Lenovo and RIM are two very different companies - one is the recent success story of the traditional computer market and RIM is on a totally different trajectory, trying to revitalize its mobile success from the past. Still, they seem like a good match and when last week we heard Lenovo’s CFO vague comments about the possibility of an acquisition of RIM it sounded viable.

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.
