A Looming Risk for BlackBerry

The recent confirmation that it's on the prowl for a possible buyer only helped to reiterate what observers of the global smartphone market have known for some time -- Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry (NASDAQ: BBRY  ) is in some seriously hot water. The company has seen its global share of the smartphone market slowly shrivel over the several quarters, and was recently passed by Microsoft as the No. 3 player in the smartphone market. Clearly, business ain't exactly booming.

However, one analyst recently made a set of very bold predictions that, if true, would mean things have gone from bad to worse at BlackBerry. In this video, tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner breaks down the rumors and what they could mean for BlackBerry and its buyout bonanza.

The tech world has been thrown into chaos as the biggest titans invade one another's turf. At stake is the future of a trillion-dollar revolution: mobile. BlackBerry may have already lost the war, as buyout rumors indicate.

    I am of the opinion that what I heard on the flight from Toronto to Hong Kong should be published .

    There were two man seating beside me discussing the sale of Black berry.

    As I heard from the long discussion there going to meet a Canadian investor and Lenovo in China to try to close a 5 month negotiation of the sale of Blackberry where Lenovo together with the Canadian investor would purchase Blackberry for $ 18,5 per share.
