Who Will End Up Owning BlackBerry?

After more than a year since the news first surfaced, Canadian smartphone laggard BlackBerry (NASDAQ: BBRY  ) came into the spotlight once again last week as the company announced it was forming a special committee to review the always-ominous "strategic alternatives." And while it's abundantly clear that BlackBerry desperately needs a tech sugar daddy, what's less obvious is who would want to snap up shares of the struggling smartphone maker. While the company does have some valuable assets, there's also that whole declining smartphone business, which makes the overall value much less attractive. In this video, tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner discusses potential suitors for BlackBerry and what he believes would be the best option for the company.

Sadly, although BlackBerry looks to be in increasingly worse shape, the mobile revolution is still in its infancy. However, with so many different companies, it can be daunting to know how to profit in the space. Fortunately, The Motley Fool has released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that tells you how. The report describes why this seismic shift will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it and also names the company at the forefront of the trend.

    Who Will End Up.....printing an intelligent well researched article on Blackberry first?

    Apparently no one seem interested in the big DoD win last week, focusing instead on recycling the same lame takeover gossip.
