SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- The number of parties interested in making a bid for BlackBerry Inc. (RIMM) may soon include Cerberus Capital Management and two of the smartphone maker's co-founders. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Cerberus, along with BlackBerry co-founders Mike Lazaridis and Doug Fregin, are looking at making a joint bid for the company that until recently was known as Research In Motion Ltd. BlackBerry has set a deadline of Monday for any other buyout offers, as the company has already reached a deal to be bought out by Fairfax Financial Holdings (FFH) for $4.7 billion, or $9 a share. Fairfax currently owns a 10% stake in BlackBerry.
