There have been a number of rumors in the past about various companies looking to buy BlackBerry, previous rumors have included Samsung, Lenovo and more.
Now according to a recent report, Microsoft is the latest company that is interested in buying BlackBerry, the latest interest in the company comes after BlackBerry returned to profit at the end of last year.
Microsoft reportedly has commissioned investment companies to evaluate the possibility of taking over BlackBerry, aiming to enhance its competitiveness in the business mobile solution segment as well as its patent portfolio in the Internet of Vehicles (IoV), mobile platform and communications sectors, the sources indicated.
Microsoft has an advantage to take over BlackBerry since the Canada-based company has shifted its business focus to software products instead of hardware devices, which complements Microsoft’s product lines, said the sources.
Of course these are just rumors at the moment, whether or not Microsoft will end up buying BlackBerry remains to be seen.
