Following rumors from BGR citing unnamed sources, Samsung is flat out denying these “reports” that they were the lead manufacturer in talks to save the sinking ship that is RIM. A Samsung rep said,

“We haven’t considered acquiring the firm and are not interested in [buying RIM],”

And why would Samsung be interested in buying RIM? Aside from their BlackBerry trademark becoming an almost household name in the business world, that was ages ago and the smartphone landscape has changed drastically since then. Samsung is currently top dog and aside from patents, I don’t see how a RIM takeover would offer any benefits to Samsung. Just my two cents.
