Report: Samsung Is Trying To Buy Blackberry

Reuters is reporting that Samsung has offered Blackberry a takeover offer for as much as $US7.5 billion, which would be about 38 per cent more than the stock market says the Canadian hardware company is even worth. Supposedly, the meeting happened last week but no party on either side has confirmed any details.

So who knows if this stretches much further than a casual business meeting, but it does look like the world’s collective dream of owning a Tizen-based smartphone with a hardware keyboard may actually happen! [Reuters]
