Rumors that Samsung may be ‘interested’ in RIM. Samsung responds quickly to nip rumor in the bud.

It’s no secret that Samsung has a good (great?) thing going with it’s latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy SIII, so it was kindof surprising to me to hear that they may be ‘interested’ in either buying RIM, buying into RIM or even licensing the latest OS offering from RIM.  The Samsung Galaxy SIII has the Android OS on it and was *built for* Android, so there’s no need for them to go shopping around for a replacement OS on this device.  I suspect that this was a feeble attempt by someone to try to make / help RIM stay relevant.
