BlackBerry is disputing media reports that they have been in acquisition talks with Samsung.
It’s speculated that BlackBerry’s patent holdings make them an attractive purchase target.
It’s been reported that BlackBerry has been offered as much as $7.5 billion, according to unnamed sources.
Here’s BlackBerry’s statement denying the reports:
“BlackBerry Limited is aware of certain press reports published today with respect to a possible offer by Samsung to purchase BlackBerry. BlackBerry has not engaged in discussions with Samsung with respect to any possible offer to purchase BlackBerry. BlackBerry’s policy is not to comment on rumors or speculation, and accordingly it does not intend to comment further.”
