Are Buyers Lining up for Vonage?

The buyers are lining up for Vonage, which apparently has rejected a $1.5 billion deal, reports the Light Reading. Does this mean IPO plans are not going along as smoothly as thought of earlier? There are rumors that BellSouth might buy them. Maybe they changed their mind over past three months, but back in July, BLS folks were rolling their eyes at the mere suggestion. Vonage rivals are making contingency plans incase a Bell operating company buys them. Ted says this reminds him of Pointcast. Others speculate Sprint, and some feel even News Corp. I am not sure who will buy them. We are in after all in the season of strange couplings. Who saw an eBay-Skype deal coming?
