BlackBerry founder Mike Lazaridis is looking at making a potential takeover bid for the struggling smartphone company.

Mr Lazaridis, a major shareholder, said today in filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that he and Douglas Fregin, who helped launch the company, are looking to potentially acquire all of the shares they do not currently own, either by themselves or with other interested parties. Together, they own about 16% of BlackBerry.
