It looks like Nokia might not be the only mobile tech heavyweight which is going to be sold this year. According to WSJ sources, the management team of the troubled BlackBerry is pushing for a sale of the company before the end of November.

The freshly emerged report claims that BlackBerry's special committee has already spoken to potentially interested parties, and prepared a short list of suitors. A sale however is not a sure thing, despite the Canadian company's haste in facilitating it.

According to a member of BlackBerry's board, pieces of the company should be sold, thus turning it into a "niche" player. Recent reports about BlackBerry Messenger being spun off into a separate company also point in this direction.
