The case is going on in SC.Vodafone paid 3900 crore out of 11000 crore demanded by IT dept. but payment was done under protest.Which means that they will file a case, if case is won all the money needs to be given back.Incase they lose the case, they dont have to pay any interest and/or penalty.

Why won't happen? It is good move for Vodafone to enter the market of mobile hardware + OS. They can own the company, but still run it as separate entity.Google has Motorola, Microsoft has Nokia, so now none of these would be interested for RIM.And nothing is impossible if you have lots of cash :D

Buying webOS from HP would be a much cheaper deal. Blackberry has deals globally with rivals of Vodafone. This just makes things complicated for them. If they make Blackberry devices exclusive to their own network, EU would beat the F out of them. Same in other markets.I do not see any mobile network involved in manufacturing of mobile devices. It is simply a bad decision for them as they end up competing with potential partners.
