The WSJ is reporting that BlackBerry executives met with Facebook last week over a potential bid. We're waiting on more details, but if the rumor holds true then we can add Facebook to the ever-growing list of companies that may be interested in scooping up BlackBerry.
Breaking: BlackBerry executives met with Facebook last week to gauge interest in potential bid. http://t.co/tYCeELTJqc— Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) October 29, 2013
The deal with Fairfax Financial should pan out one way or the other in just about a week, and BlackBerry has reportedly heard interest from other big name companies like Google, Cisco and even Mike Lazaridis.
The rumor comes with no other details, so whether anything will come of this is unknown. BlackBerry still has until next Monday to actively seek any other offers.
