Lenovo is reportedly considering  the possibility of entering a partnership with BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM).

Chief financial officer Wong Wai Ming said at the World  Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland that the Canadian firm is one of several  potential companies they could from ties with to boost their mobile division.

“We are looking at all opportunities – RIM and many others,” Bloomberg quotes the executive as  saying. “We’ll have no hesitation if the right opportunity comes along that  could benefit us and shareholders,”


RIM CEO Thorsten Heins recently  sparked speculation that the company is considering moving away from hardware  development when he admitted  the sale of this division is one of several options currently under  consideration.

However, he insisted that the launch of the BlackBerry  10 operating system on January 30 is the immediate priority.

BB10 is  viewed by some as RIM’s last chance to remain competitive in the marketplace  following a dismal year marred by below-par sales and reputation-damaging  service outages.

RIM is also said to be mulling over the possibility of  licensing out BB10 to third-party manufacturers, but a move in this direction is  dependent on the success of the platform.
