Mouldy Blackberry might get a Sculley

Written by Nick Farrell



Old Apples for old BlackBerry

It looks like the former Apple Chief Executive John Sculley will put in a bid to buy the troubled smartphone maker BlackBerry.

The Globe and Mail reported how Sculley declined to comment on the matter, but told the Canadian newspaper that he has been a long-time BlackBerry fan and user. He said that there is a lot of future value in Blackberry, but without experienced people who have run this type of business, and without a strategic plan, it would be really challenging.

Not really a confirmation, but it does hint that Blackberry is on Sculley’s mind. BlackBerry is also in talks with Cisco, Google, Lenovo and SAP and some others about selling them all or parts of itself, several sources close to the matter had told Reuters. BlackBerry co-founders Mike Lazaridis and Douglas Fregin are also considering a bid, a securities filing showed earlier this month.
