Lenovo takes a look at BlackBerry

Chinese personal computer maker Lenovo has signed a non-disclosure deal to examine the books of troubled Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry, the Wall Street Journal said yesterday, quoting unnamed sources. BlackBerry said in August it was exploring options that could include an outright sale. An offer from a Chinese company could upset the Canadian government, which vets takeovers to ensure they are in the national interest.
