2013 is looking to be the year of the exit of the titans. First Nokia. Now BlackBerry. A Wall Street Journal report claims that the BlackBerry board are eager to sell off the company, latest by November this year. The report claims that BlackBerry’s special committee has already spoken to potentially interested parties, and prepared a short list of suitors.
So we wait. I’d rather the company gets sold than that it folds up. If sold, the legacy has a chance of living on, at least. But, hey! We can only keep our fingers crossed and wait.
