If the rumors are true (and they often are when tech and Wall Street collide) then BlackBerry may be on the table for purchase. The once-proud smartphone maker has struggled to keep up and their latest (last?) play to stay alive with the BlackBerry 10 has not given them much hope for a future.
BlackBerry founder Mike Lazaridis is reportedly considering a bid to take over the struggling smartphone maker.
Lazaridis, who stepped down as co-chief executive last year, is talking to private equity firms about a bid for the company, which reported a big loss and announced 4,500 layoffs this week.
