BlackBerry failsafe: selling itself to Intel, Google, Samsung or LG

BlackBerry's sale to Fairfax Financial might not work, so the Canadian phone maker has some backup plans (NASDAQ:BBRY, KRX:066575, KRX:005930, NASDAQ:INTC, NASDAQ:GOOG)

As it stands, Fairfax Financial have a deal with BlackBerry, but this could all go south at any minute, just like BlackBerry did. Just in case, we have Reuters reporting that BlackBerry is having early, just-in-case sales discussions with some industry giants.

These giants include Samsung, Google, Intel, LG and more. We don't know if these companies are actually serious, and would acquire BlackBerry if the deal with Fairfax Financial went sideways, but they could be interested in BlackBerry's servers, as the company isn't ready to hand over its smartphone business, yet.

 

The companies could also wait for BlackBerry to really limp, and be forced onto life support - which wouldn't be too far away - and then snatch and grab them cheap.
