Lenovo might attempt to make a bid to acquire BlackBerry this week

Currently, Lenovo’s Motorola acquisition is in its final stages.

Lenovo is showing great signs of becoming a smartphone giant. It is already one of the largest smartphone brands in China and is looking to compete with Xiaomi by launching a new brand altogether.
