Huawei has no interest in buying BlackBerry

There may be a savior company out there that will bail out BlackBerry but it apparently won’t be Huawei. In an interview with Reuters, Huawei board member Chen Lifang said that her company has no interest in buying BlackBerry or any other smartphone company because “we want to rely on ourselves.” A Huawei-BlackBerry merger was always unlikely because the United States and Canada would have serious concerns about letting a company with significant mobile security infrastructure get bought out by a firm that has alleged ties to the Chinese military. The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that BlackBerry has been in discussions with a number of suitors about a potential sale and that it wants to complete a deal to sell off the company by November.
