I’m sure the name John Sculley may not ring a bell to some of you but FYI, he was the one who booted Steve Jobs out from the same company he founded way back in 1985. He has since left Apple and ventured on other major companies like MetroPCS and Sculley Brothers, LLC but looks like Sculley will be popular again soon by making a bid for BlackBerry.
The Canadian company is going through a lot right now but it’s still hopeful that some good soul would salvage them. We know that BlackBerry is already exploring different possibilities like taking on Fairfax Financial’s Prem Watsa’s bid of a $4.7 billion investment.
Aside from Watsa, John Sculley is believed to be considering to help BlackBerry. RIM founder Mike Lazaridis still has not made a decision but he better does before the company takes another similar kick in the crotch.
Who will buy BlackBerry? We heard Samsung is not interested in acquiring the Canadian smartphone pioneer. According to reports,BlackBerry is also talking with SAP, Google, and Cisco Systems. So who will help BlackBerry?
