BlackBerrys board does not believe a break-up of the smartphone maker is currently in its best interests, according to people familiar with the discussions.

The board rejected proposals from several technology companies for various BlackBerry assets on grounds that a break-up did not serve the interest of all stakeholders, said the sources, who did not want to be identified.
