I think a purchase by FB would be great, would really help with the younger generation that is all flocking towards iphones..it will be interesting to see what happens, I hope (as a Canadian) that RIM can somehow beat the odds and make a resurgence!

And would be totally incongruent with their current business plan of returning to an enterprise focus.

In addition, Mark Zuckerburg said after the Instagram purchase that they don't plan to, if ever, make a purchase like that again.

Exactly. If anyone buys RIM, I would bet my bottom dollar that it will be a hardware manufacturer looking to acquire the software and patents.

I agree. Can't see Facebook at all in this mix. Maybe Microsoft or Amazon or Samsung perhaps. Not Facebook.

It will be politically difficult for a non-Canadian company to purchase RIM

Just my 2 cents

Politically difficult for whom - RIM or the buyer?
