Samsung said to buy BlackBerry soon for $7.5 billion

Samsung is reported to buy Blackberry soon or they at least made the first steps towards an offer for the Canadian company at the moment. After the news spread around, the Blackberry stocks vent up 2 % in a few hours, and the stocks ended up on a high note. It is said that Samsung is now looking to buy the competition smartphone company for $7.5 billion, despite the fact that Blackberry is having a hard time on the market at the moment.

 

Blackberry stocks

 

Last year, the situation was reversed, as Blackberry was looking to find a buyer in Samsung and Google, but in the end all deals broke off.

Even if they tried to revamp and restart their smartphone line, Blackberry recently decided to go back to the roots of their success with a revamped physical keyboard and a changed Classic. BlackBerry Classic can’t save the company on its own though, meaning that the Canadian company is still struggling to find its new footing on the market. Reuters reports that Samsung is looking to buy the company mainly for of its patents and not the actual hardware. Last week, executives from both companies were reported to meet about a deal.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge reaches the US market – see available prices here!

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is available on the US market at the shocking price of $399 on contract at most carriers. If you want the Samsung device with the screened edge for extra (futuristic) space, you’re in for an expensive-ish treat.

Note Edge costs around $900 off contract and US carriers will be selling the device with a two-year contract which makes the device cost around $399.99.

The Edge device is very similar to Galaxy Note 4, and under the stylish hood you will find a 2.75 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. It has a 16MP rear camera with a 3.7MP snapper in the front. It has a 2560 x 1440p resolution plus 160 pixels on the side. The side-display will display notifications, shortcuts and information while draining a bit of extra juice from the 3220 mAh battery.

 

ATT

 

AT&T is selling the device on-contract for $399.99, whereas the off-contract deal is for $945.99, just south to a grand.

 

TMobile

 

T-Mobile sells the device for $36.25 a month which adds up to $870, even if you don’t get a contract to cut off some of those monthly payments.

 

ATT

 

Sprint’s two-year contract prices start at $429.99, and you can get it full price at $840, around $100 cheaper than AT&T. The two-year contract is $0 down with 24 payments of $35 each.

Verizon and US Cellular will be selling the device as well, but it does not show up on their websites, which means we have no official prices yet.
