    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.
