Rumors of Lenovo bid for BlackBerry stoked by CEO interview, PhoneArena says

Rumors that Lenovo (LNVGY) may be interested in pursuing an acquisition of BlackBerry (BBRY), which have previously circulated, are recurring following an interview with Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing published in the French paper LesEchos, according to PhoneArena. Yuanqing did not say such an acquisition was being pursued but did say such a purchase "could possibly make sense. But first I have to analyze the market well and understand what is the exact weight of this company," according to a translation of the report.
