I donít think anyone saw this coming today has become one extremely special day for Research in Motion. In addition to the official launch of the BlackBerry App World earlier this morning, the folks at Waterloo have given us yet another huge surprise.
A lot of the talk in the smartphone world these days has to do with the Apple iPhone, but we could be looking at one of the biggest corporate mergers in the history of cell phones. It has just been announced that Research in Motion, maker of the BlackBerry line of devices, is in the process of acquiring Palm, Inc. This news comes mere months before the pending release of the Palm Pre, a smartphone that is supposed infuse new energy and excitement into the Palm brand. Research in Motion wants to capitalize on this excitement and extend it to the BlackBerry line as a whole.

I'm with dc/dc on this one.

The extract below gives it away somewhat:

"Looking to the future, Research in Motion hinted at the possibility of more xxx8220;Berryxxx8221; sub-brands. It is unclear how they would approach a new moniker like BlueBerry or RaspBerry."

A poor choice for a rumor. Who the heck (besides Bono and Elevation Partners) would want to buy Palm?

I just figured the typo was intentional. Vague, but intentional none the less.
