Why Samsung should buy Blackberry


Seoul: Since last few days, the techie-talk of the town was Samsung was going to take over Blackberry. But in reality, Samsung and Blackberry have splashed cold water on such assumptions. According to a report, it was stated that Samsung wants to take over the struggling Canadian device maker for a whooping $7.5 billion. However, the final update did not stop the tech industry watchers from dissecting all the possibilities.

Once strong in mobile devices, Blackberry is now overtaken by the touchscreen offerings of Apple and Samsung. But analysts say it has technology and intellectual property that could make it attractive to Samsung. On the other hand, Blackberry has been banking on its brand value and technology to regain its image.
