Is Microsoft About to Purchase RIM?
on May 5th, 2011
This years BlackBerry World trade show being held this week, brought the announcement of their new "PlayBook" tablet. That announcement however was dwarfed by Steve Ballmer's announcement of a new partnership between the software giant and the smartphone giant that would bring Bing to the platform. A deal that wouldn't normally bring the boss of Microsoft out from behind his desk to announce to the world. Is this an indication of bigger things to come?
