Lenovo says RIM acquisition reports were taken out of context, it was speaking about acquisitions in general

Lenovo says RIM acquisition reports were taken out of context, it was speaking about acquisitions in general
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.

Here is what Lenovo wanted to underline about the most recent rumor on its alleged RIM acquisition:


RIM on the other hand has also noted that it is now completely focused on bringing BlackBerry 10 out to market:

So while the deal would seem a good fit, it’s worth once again pointing out that nothing is set in stone, and those comments from Lenovo’s chief financial officer were just a wider thoughts on the company’s strategy.

Thanks god the rumors were not right... BB is a dead end. I was afraid that Lenovo will become HP. (HP dead because they bought the /nice/ platform called WebOS, Lenovo /almost dead/ because they almost buy the /nice/ platform called BB10).

I really hope that LENOVO NEVER EVER THINK about BB again. BB is FOR LOOSER. In Country that BB was popular it's only because the user were UNEDUCATED about the alternative of messaging platform. In the country that the user were educated, such as United States of America, Germany, France, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, India, Viet Nam, etc.... BB were having a hard time because user know BB is good for nothing
