It is no secret that BlackBerry is struggling at the moment as its BlackBerry 10 operating system and its accompanying devices aren’t exactly selling like hotcakes. This has led to BlackBerry to seek a potential buyout from companies out there and have reportedly asked other tech companies, such as Intel, Google, and Samsung if they might be interested as well. In any case in the event that BlackBerry is sold, how will the company fare? Will its buyer breakup the company and just keep its patents? Or will the new owner attempt to pick up where BlackBerry left off?
While that remains to be seen, former Apple CEO, John Sculley, was interviewed by the folks at ZDNet where he was quoted as saying that he is “absolutely convinced” that BlackBerry will be able to survive. Sculley goes on to offer some advice by stating, “If you can strategically separate the device side of the business, it can be under the same ownership, but operationally separate from the enterprise service business, there’s a terrific chance to turn BlackBerry around.” What do you guys think? Will BlackBerry survive after the buyout?
