Lenovo likely to buy parts of BlackBerry only - Reuters

Lenovo (LNVGF.PK) will probably just try to acquire parts of BlackBerry (BBRY) rather than the whole company, Reuters reports, due to regulatory concerns.

The news agency's article is in contrast to a WSJ report that said that the Chinese computer maker is "actively considering a bid for all of BlackBerry."

Reuters didn't specify what the regulatory concerns are but did cite experts who believe that BlackBerry's secure network would probably be sold to a North American buyer because of security issues, especially as the U.S. government is a major customer.
