Rumors are swirling that the BlackBerry maker has hired investment bank Goldman Sachs to help actively shop itself to potential buyers. According to Reuters, one unidentified trader said yesterday that RIM is “up on Goldman,” but cautioned that it doesn’t mean a sale is coming anytime soon.

It’s been widely speculated that Amazon, and Nokia has shown an interest in scooping up the struggling Canadian-based manufacturer, but changed their mind.
