Maybe the worth of BBRY is higher now? Given the Snowden leaks of NSA spying, there is a market for phones that can't be hacked NSA. There was an article, late 2010, in which a number of countries were forbidding BBRY from selling their phones because their countries couldn't hack into their communications.
Sounds like BBRY now could be worth a lot more than current asking price. Perhaps Merkel and Hollande would find BBRY important from Germany's and France's own security.
