SAP not interested in acquiring BlackBerry

Some of the earlier reports indicated that SAP could be interested in acquiring BlackBerry. That, however, ain’t gonna happen according to the German company’s CFO, Werner Brandt.

“Blackberry doesn’t fit with our strategy,” Brandt told Euro am Sonntag in an interview, adding that SAP already offers mobile solutions and did not need to fill any gaps there.

With SAP out of picture, the Canadian company is left with other contenders that include the likes of Lenovo, Cisco and Google, all of which may be interested in acquiring portion (or all) of BlackBerry’s assets. Moreover, there are other candidates such as former Apple boss John Sculley and even BlackBerry’s co-founders.

Somehow we’re rooting for BlackBerry’s co-founders as these guys have the passion needed to keep the company alive, no matter what. On the other hand, we have to blame them for not changing BlackBerry on time and basically bringing it to situation where it is now…
