BlackBerry’s for Sale, but Who’s Buying?

Omar El Akkad, the Globe and Mail:

“Google, Apple, Microsoft – I don’t see them doing that,” said BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis. “They each have their own platforms. Amazon? I doubt it. Samsung? Maybe, but I doubt it.”

Samsung might have reason to look in BlackBerry’s direction in part because the South Korean company is becoming concerned about its reliance on Google Inc.’s Android operating system, which now powers virtually all of Samsung’s best-selling smartphones, Mr. Gillis said. However he is still skeptical that there’s enough reason for Samsung to seriously consider making a run at BlackBerry.
