I was just listening to Research in Motion CFO Dennis Kavelman on Squawk Box this morning and when he was asked if there was any truth to the BlackBerry maker acquiring rival mobile PDA maker Palm, he didn’t definitively say no.

To be fair, he said that such a takeover was highly unlikely and really didn’t make sense for Research in Motion, however, when asked directly if the rumors were false and that RIM had no intention of merger talks with Palm, Kavelman would not flat out say no.

This could be a case of a corporate exec never saying never or could be that RIM never gives you a clue to what they are doing until they actually do it.

What do you think?
