Question This PostRIM announced in a press release today. that it will be selling the BlackBerry platform to Treo maker, Palm , in a record $169 Billion dollar deal.  Asian reporter, Trisha Takanawa was the first to report this story on the Quhaog, RI news early this morning.  The main reason cited for RIM's decision was that RIM wanted to show its BlackBerry users the robust and stable experience that could be had by using PalmOS.  All BlackBerry users are urged to call 1-800-555-6227 for more information in exchanging their BlackBerry's for Palm Treo 8800 models.

Happy April Fool's Day everyone! :)

I was under the impression (from Google News) that Motorola was going to buy Palm...

Either way, if RIM sold to Palm, that would probably be the biggest mistake ever. That's like Microsoft selling to Linux! - It's just not going to happen...
