11 Samsung logoEarlier today we reported that according to an analyst, Samsung was reportedly in talks with RIM about licensing Blackberry 10. This isn’t the first time that it has been suggested that a company was interested in either taking over the Blackberry arm of RIM or licensing its software, and while RIM has admitted that they are looking into the possibility of licensing out their technology, Samsung has come forward and denied the recent reports. In a request for comment from All Things D, a Samsung spokesperson was quoted as saying, “Samsung Electronics has not considered the acquisition of Research In Motion or licensing BB10.” So there you have it, unless Samsung was trying to be coy with us, it seems that there is no possibility of Samsung licensing Blackberry 10 or taking over RIM in the near future. While this has been discussed before in the past, what are your thoughts about another OEM putting out Blackberry devices? Yay or nay?
