RIM should buy LinkedIn

Rim hearts LinkedIn

There has been a lot of talk about LinkedIn (IPO, News Corp buyout, Facebook buyout).

Jim Balsillie just gave a presentation at the GSMA World Congress saying that the future of business communications lies in social networking.

It would make so much sense for RIM to buy LinkedIn. RIM could get a social networking service that could instantly enhance the value of its devices.

This is my Valentine’s Day UX match made in heaven.

Full disclosure: We still own RIM in our UXFund
