Last month Research In Motion hired JP Morgan and RBC Capital to “to assist the Company and our Board of Directors in reviewing RIM’s business and financial performance.” That being said it is now being reported that RIM is preparing to split the company into two different divisions, one will handle the smartphone and tablet area and the second will focus on their messaging solutions.
It is being rumored that the split would include s possible sale to two potential buyers Facebook and Amazon. Facebook is looking to produce their own smartphone so this buy would make sense for them. At this time these are just rumors churning on the interweds, nothing official from RIM. Please let us know what you think about this possible split/sale in the comments.
