Analyst Says Splitting Up RIM Wouldn't Be Worth The Effort

Credit Suisse analyst Kulbinder Garcha does not think splitting up components of Research In Motion's business will make them more attractive to a would-be acquirer.

"A break up is possible," Garcha told All Things Digital. "[But] we question the quality of the underlying patent portfolio and also believe that converting RIM’s existing network operations center for other OS platforms may require a high level of effort for minimal functionality improvement."
