HTC, Samsung May Eye RIM Platform


Although Samsung said it is not interested in buying struggling Research In Motion, the Blackberry maker may still be attractive to Asian smartphone makers.

Samsung said on Wednesday it has no interest in buying RIM or licensing its operating system, refuting earlier reports.

Product delays and profit warnings have eroded confidence in RIM.

Despite Samsung's stance, RIM may hold enough allure to interest Asian vendors like LG Electronics, HTC and ZTE, as RIM's mobile platform could help them better compete with Google's Android OS.

Samsung has its own platform called bada and is seeking to boost its presence by merging it with the Linux-based Tizen, a platform backed by Intel.

"We haven't considered acquiring the firm and are not interested in (buying RIM)," said Samsung spokesman James Chung, adding that Samsung had not been approached by the Canadian firm for a takeover and was not interested in licensing RIM's mobile platform.

Gaining access to RIM's BlackBerry 10 could allow Asian mobile makers take advantage of RIM's subscriber base in the enterprise market and diversify away from sole dependence on Android.
