24/01/2013: Lenovo could be the suitor for Blackberry hardware if RIM sell? New apps and some shots of the Huawei Ascend P2? Plus much more!

Could Lenovo be the suitor for RIM's Blackberry business?

   We saw this post over on Bloomberg earlier today and we've not heard anything in quite a while which would make as much sense as this would.

   The other day we heard that RIM could be tempted to sell off their Blackberry hardware arm if the launch of BB10 isn't 100% successful. It's hard to argue that that wouldn't make sense, there's no point sustaining part of business which isn't profitable and this is a very real possibility at the moment. So when we saw Bloomberg report this quote from Lenovo's Chief Financial Officer, Wong Wai Ming, we were instantly intrigued. He said:
 “We are looking at all opportunities -- RIM and many others... We’ll have no hesitation if the right opportunity comes along that could benefit us and shareholders.”
   If you think about it Lenovo purchase IBM's Thinkpad computer line and it would completely make sense if they could do a similar job here and we have no doubt that they could make this equally as successful!

   What do you think? Is this a possibility? Obviously there's a lot of ifs and buts, but we can see it happening!

And finally, we saw this advert earlier on our Twitter feed and we had to show you! We're not sure how many of you guys were born in the '90's but we were and Microsoft has captured what we remember from our childhood amazingly with this little ad. Unfortunately the nostalgia isn't quite enough to tempt us back to Internet Explorer, but we did have a cheeky little play with it after seeing the ad, so the ad did it's job!

We know Nokia and Apple both released their earnings reports! They'll arrive in separate posts soon!
