    Research in Motion shares rise on Microsoft rumor

    Advertisement



    Take it for what its worth...

    Research in Motion Ltd (RIM.TO: Quote, Profile , Research) (RIMM.O: Quote, Profile , Research) shares rose more than 3 percent on Thursday on renewed market speculation that Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O: Quote, Profile , Research) could be interested in buying the BlackBerry maker.

    "Microsoft has been mentioned as a possible buyer," said Frederic Ruffy, an analyst at options education firm Optionetics in California.

    "According to speculation, the software giant might be interested in RIM in response to Google's (GOOG.O: Quote, Profile , Research) recent announcement that it is interested in making its own mobile phone operating system, which would compete with Windows Mobile," he added.

    RIM shares were up 3.35 percent at $84.59 in midday trading after posting a new high of $85. Some option traders appeared to be betting that the stock's strength could continue.

    How about Google buys RIM? Then my technology worlds would be perfectly meshed. Mmmm, I sigh with wonder at just the thought.

    Doubt it. Looks like it will be Linux, though.

    So we can have everything corrupted by MS way organization, efficiency and bloatware!!!! RIM listen to your customers.... There is a reason why we dont use MS mobile or want anything to do with it.

    Then they will change the name to Softberry or Microberry... Or Blacksoft!!! Then we would have to have use the god awful activesync instead of DS manager.... Its a freaking nightmare

    Nah. This will never happen. Probably some rumours made up by someone who wants to sell their RIM stock.
