Shares of Research In Motion (RIMM) surged to a 13-month high on Monday in Toronto after CEO Thorsten Heins told a German newspaper the company could sell its handset business or license its software to rivals following the launch of its new BlackBerry 10 operating system, according to reports.

"The main thing for now is to successfully introduce Blackberry 10. Then we'll see," said Heins in the newspaper interview.

Japanese and U.S. investigators have begun an investigation into the maker of the lithium-ion batteries used in Boeing's grounded 787 jets, The Associated Press reported.

A spokesman for battery maker GS Yuasa said investigators visited the company's headquarters in Kyoto, Japan, on Monday and that Yuasa was cooperating with the probe.

All 50 of the 787 Dreamliners that Boeing has delivered to airlines were grounded after an overheated battery forced the emergency landing of an All Nippon Airways 787 flight last week in western Japan. Boeing has halted deliveries of new planes until it can address the electrical problems.
