Google buys Motorola and RIM's fortune's improve

Watching investor analysis about RIM fluctuate all over is both entertaining and frustrating.  The latest surprise being Google's buying Motorola Mobility causing RIM stock to go up.  The primary logic appears to be "if Google is buying up Motorola, patents must be worth something--RIM has way more patents, and they have more phones in the market place, so they're probably not as bad off as we thought."

Of course, nothing has changed for RIM except investor attitude, which caused the lift.  Not everyone is so uplifting, thinking that RIM will do badly because they don't have a dance partner. (What about HP? )

Good to see that there's a more positive RIM blush these days!
