"We hope to see RIM remain a global leader and player, and make sure it grows organically," says Canada's Industry Minister, suggesting his government might object to a sale of RIM's (RIMM +9.6%) hardware ops. Thorsten Heins suggested a hardware sale is possible in his interview, but it doesn't look as if one is planned over the near-term. RIM remains sharply higher following Heins' interview, new BB10 leaks, and an upgrade to Sector Outperform from Scotia Capital - Scotia upgraded RIM to Sector Perform only 4 months ago.
