Research in Motion (RIMM) is in talks to hire a financial advisor to evaluate the best way to monetize their assets. I think that this is a very positive development and that the company should be very proactive in reevaluating their options. Patent sales and operating system licensing seem to be quite attractive options, and ultimately I don’t think Research in Motion should continue to go about as a stand alone business, but instead should be bought by a larger competitor. Microsoft (MSFT) could do a lot worse with their money than acquiring RIMM at a bargain price with 77 million users.
