    The Chief Financial Officer, however, made no point about the proposed deal but hinted that talks were on with RIM officials regarding a strategic venture. His talk also conveyed that valuation of a deal is superior to Lenovo and also observed the double digit stock price of RIM.

    RIM's stock prices are soaring high following its announcement on the launch of Blackberry10 platform this month end. It is to be noted that RIM was bombarded from the Nasdaq-100 for poor performance.

    Lenovo's smartphones, on the other hand are doing well in the market but outside China Lenovo is known more for PCs. Acquiring a company like RIM would be the best option for Lenovo to flourish in its smartphone business in the West which presently is completely dominated by Samsung and Apple.
