If Lenovo buys Blackberry, not only would it kill Blackberry, but Lenovo sales would tank due to increased public awareness of Chinese spying. Which means that the PC execs at HP are probably getting on their dimpled knees every morning and every night and offering a Ricky Bobby prayer to "Baby Jesus" that the Lenovo acquisition will go through so they can regain world leadership in PC sales (and Larry Ellison is probably praying that HP will do something dumb, like buying Blackberry).
I'd personally like to see Sculley put together the deal. Why?
- Even though my new Android (Samsung Galaxy S4) is far superior to my old iPhones (don't get me wrong, my wife will ALWAYS have the latest iPhone), I'd prefer a less open supply chain for my smartphone operating system, for security purposes.
- Naturally, Mr. Sculley would have to make sure certain key features existed on my new Blackberry (I'll keep those secret for now). And finally,
- I'd prefer AT&T as a vendor, since I've had very good luck with them as a cellular provider over the years.
