Bloomberg claims IBM may buy RIM's enterprise business

technologyEdward KiledjianComment
Bloomberg is reporting that IBM may bid for Research In Motion's (RIM) enterprise service business including its network infrastructure, Blackberry Internet Service, Blackberry Enterprise Service, device to device encryption, network compression and more.
"IBM made an informal approach about possibly acquiring the division, which operates a network of secure servers used to support its BlackBerry devices, said one of the people, who asked not to be named because the matter is private."

This is an interesting departure from Samsung that has had to repeat its position that it is not interested in anything RIM has to offer.
