Submission + - IBM interested in RIM's enterprise services unit (zdnet.com)

PolygamousRanchKid writes: Research In Motion's enterprise services unit have attracted the interest of IBM, which has made an "informal approach" on potentially acquiring the division. The division operates a network of secure servers used to support its BlackBerry devices, a source who declined to be named, told Bloomberg in a Friday report.

However, no party has yet shown interest in buying all of RIM or the division which manufactures its BlackBerry phones, but the Canadian company will wait for the rollout of BlackBerry 10 phones next year before making any decisions on a sale, the person said. During its fourth quarter earnings call in March this year, RIM CEO Thorsten Heins said it plans to refocus on the enterprise business and capitalize on its position in the segment.
