RIM (RIMM +4.3%) has shot higher after Lenovo (LNVGY.PK) CFO Wong Dai suggests his company is open to buying RIM. "We are looking at all opportunities -- RIM and many others" spoke Dai at Davos, while noting RIM's run-up makes a deal more expensive. The comments come shortly after Thorsten Heins mentioned the possibility of selling RIM's hardware ops, something a Canadian government official didn't sound enthusiastic about. Lenovo's smartphone sales have surged lately.
