Samsung logoEarlier today we reported on a rumor that suggested that Samsung may be considering acquiring HP’s PC division. Given that Samsung has plans to become the world’s largest PC maker, the rumors while unfounded, sort of made sense. Why not acquire one of the largest PC makers and add their brand and reputation to their company, which ultimately may help to boost Samsung into the top of the list?


As it turns out, those rumors have thus been debunked as read on Samsung’s official blog:

“The recent rumors that Samsung Electronics will be taking over Hewlett-Packard Co.’s personal computer business are not true.

We hope this clarifies any confusion that may have occurred.”

A short and sweet statement which basically puts all those rumors to rest. Admittedly it would have been quite an interesting deal to see go down, as Samsung has been known more for their displays and smartphones rather than computers (as opposed to dedicated PC makers such as HP, Dell, etc).
