Microsoft and Nokia reportedly considering buying RIM

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Microsoft and Nokia have flirted with the idea of making a joint bid for Research In Motion Ltd.

It’s not clear what the status of the talks is at this point but apparently the talks did happen.

RIM has struggled with service outages over the past year culminating with a major worldwide outage this October.

RIM shares have hit multi-year lows and the perception of the companies reliability has hit an all time low.
