Analyst: RIM worth $25 billion According to analyst firm Morgan Keegan, BlackBerry maker RIM should be worth $25 billion in a buyout.
The analysis comes days after Google's surprise purchase of Motorola Mobility and all its patents for $12.5 billion.

Morgan Keegan notes RIM could sell for $47 per share, due to its large hoard of smartphone patents.

A different research firm, Stewart Capital, believes Samsung or Microsoft could be potential buyers.

Microsoft would certainly make an interesting candidate as they would instantly acquire a large customer base to help spread their Windows Phone 7 platform to.

Yea well I highly doubt people using black berries would instantly switch to MS due to their lack of success penetrating the smartphone business.
