Microsoft and Xiaomi thinking about buying Blackberry

Microsoft and Xiaomi thinking about buying Blackberry
BlackBerry has certainly not been doing well in recent years, though CEO John Chen has managed to somewhat halt the company's downfall throughout last year, and even draw some attention back towards the company, no small thanks to the unorthodox Passport handset.

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.
