IBM informally inquired about possible acquisition of enterprise services unit of RIM
It seems that lately not a week goes by without some sort of rumor popping up about Research In Motion being sold off in pieces. Today's rumor is regarding the enterprise services division of RIM and IBM, who has supposedly "made an informal approach about possibly acquiring the division". One of the persons familiar with the matter has stated that no talks are currently underway regarding any such sale, and spokespersons for both IBM and RIM refused to comment on the rumor.
Earlier this week we also heard rumors of Samsung looking at making a RIM purchase, which Samsung later denied. Take this as you will folks, though it's probably just another rumor to add to the long list. I'm sure we'll see many more between now and the launch of BlackBerry 10.
