After more than a year since the news first surfaced, Canadian smartphone laggard BlackBerry (NYSE:BB) 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.
