- Dow Jones reports Lenovo (LNVGY.PK) has signed an NDA to look at BlackBerry's (BBRY +1.6%) books. The report comes two days after one from Bloomberg indicating an NDA has been signed with Cerberus.
- Lenovo has been featured in BlackBerry M&A speculation more than once this year, in part due to comments from Lenovo execs. But the Chinese PC/smartphone vendor's relatively small market cap could be an issue, as might national security concerns (should Lenovo want to acquire BlackBerry's network).
- BlackBerry has rallied a bit on the report.
