RIM Looking To Stay Afloat By Selling To Samsung? [Update: No]

RIM Looking To Stay Afloat By Selling To Samsung? [Update: No]

An interesting report from Boy Genius Report claims that Research In Motion is eyeing Samsung as its new daddy. The defunct BlackBerry-maker is apparently considering a last resort to stay afloat amid depressing sales and investor qualms.

According to BGR, Research In Motion wants to sell itself for up to $ 15 billion to Samsung. Considering the patent war that companies like Apple are fighting at present, Samsung could buy RIM to reinforce its patent portfolio. (Although RIM’s own portfolio may not be that valuable after all.)

As our own Vincent Messina at Cult of Android argues, buying RIM right now would be like trying to save rotten cargo from a sinking ship. Unless there’s something really incredible hidden deep within the labs at RIM, acquiring a company that has fallen short of Wall Street’s expectations quarter after quarter isn’t such a hot idea. Not to mention that the PlayBook doesn’t even have an email app yet. What does that say about a company’s relevance?

BGR suggests that Samsung could be considering RIM for BlackBerry Messenger. Such a technology would be able to help Samsung “differentiate itself inside the Android ecosystem” and possibly ride the coattails of Apple’s iMessage. The problem with such a scenario is that Samsung has already invested heavily in its own ChatON app as a cross-platform messaging solution.

Samsung is the largest smartphone maker in the U.S. It doesn’t need to take on RIM’s problems.

Buying RIM outright wouldn’t help Samsung hold off Apple and Google’s market share growth at all. As AllThingsD argues, it would make much more sense for RIM to license its BlackBerry 10 OS to Samsung for future smartphones and tablets. And even then, I have a feeling that RIM will need to bend over backwards for anyone to consider getting in bed with a company that’s had to slash the price of its tablet twice.

Update: It seems as though I spoke too soon. Reuters has just reported that Samsung has said it isn’t interested in RIM at all. After BGR’s report, RIM’s shares jumped over 10% during trading today. Someone made a nice chunk of change. (Thanks, Jeff!)

Today At Cult Of Android: Ruling Determines Motorola Doesn’t Violate Apple’s Patents, HTC EVO 3D Update Removes Carrier IQ, And More…
Android may not be every Mac user’s cup of tea, but it’s the biggest mobile operating system in the world, and it’s important to know what’s going on with Android — what it’s doing right, and what it’s doing wrong. Here’s the best stories that hit today over at our sister site, Cult of Android.

ITC Judge Rules In Favor Of Motorola, Initial Ruling Determines Motorola Doesn’t Violate Apple’s Patents

If you happen to care about the ongoing patent wars, then you may want to know about the latest ruling in the Apple vs. Motorola case brought down by the International Trade Commission. The Administrative Law Judge ruled that Motorola Mobility does not violate any of the three Apple patents listed in Apple’s suit. This suit dates back to October 2010, when Apple claimed that various Motorola devices infringed upon certain patents related to touchscreen features, as well as an ability to add components without having to run an installation program or rebooting. While this is an initial ruling, chances of the final ruling being any different are extremely slim. More…

T-Mobile To Get The HTC Ville This Spring

T-Mobile didn’t have much to show at CES this year, but it’s not all that uncommon to see some carriers and manufacturers hold off until Mobile World Congress in February. While we’ve heard some high-end HTC devices will be heading T-Mobile’s way, we’ve got confirmation that HTC’s thinnest phone will be coming this spring. According to pocketnow, the 1.5GHz dual-core HTC Ville will be coming to T-Mobile and will feature: More…

With DROID 4 On The Horizon, Verizon Drops Price Of DROID 3 To $ 99

Whether you like it or not, phones are being pushed out at a ridiculous rate, and whatever you purchase today will most likely be outdated within the year. Such is the case with the recent announcement of Motorola’s DROID 4. It’s only been six months since the DROID 3 was released and Motorola has already moved on to the next big iteration, leaving consumers to wonder why there was even a DROID 3 to begin with? To add insult to injury, Verizon has just dropped the price of the DROID 3 to $ 99 in preparation for the DROID 4 landing. More…

Good News: It Seems That Recent Security Update For The HTC EVO 3D Also Removed Carrier IQ

You may remember the “minor” security update for the HTC EVO 3D that Sprint rolled out a few days ago, but I bet you didn’t know it had a hidden surprise (don’t worry it’s a good surprise). It appears Sprint was kind enough to remove Carrier IQ from the HTC EVO 3D as slyly as they implemented it. This is great news for EVO 3D users looking to get that monkey off their back. More…

How To: Adjust Screen Brightness On Your Android Device

Today we’re going to take a look at how to adjust your screen’s brightness level. Adjusting your screen brightness is one of the most basic Android display settings you’ll find and allows you to compensate for the lack of or over abundance of, surrounding light. Most Android devices will already be set to automatically adjust your screen brightness depending on how much light your Android device’s light sensor detects, but since everyone is different, you may not want your have your brightness dimmed at a particular time, thus making it important to know how to manually adjust it.

Samsung Galaxy Note Coming To Verizon And Sprint As The Galaxy Journal [Rumor]

The Samsung Galaxy Note, in all of its 5.3″ glory, had a strong presence at CES this year. The announcement of it coming stateside on AT&T had many giddy with anticipation, while others wondered who in the world would want such a large “not quite a phone, not quite a tablet.” Whether or not this device appeals to you doesn’t diminish its intrigue and it seems other US carriers are now taking interest. According to an “industry analyst” that spoke with the Examiner, the Galaxy Note will definitely be available to Sprint and Verizon subscribers, possibly under a different name: More…
