Washington, Jan 18 (ANI): South Korean mobile maker Samsung has said it is not interested in taking over Research In Motion, refuting a tech blog report that fueled a nearly ten percent surge in the BlackBerry maker's shares.
Earlier a tech blog report suggested RIM was seeking to sell itself to the consumer electronics giant.
But a Samsung spokesman, James Chung, said that "haven't considered acquiring the firm and are not interested in buying RIM," The Chicago Tribune reports.
Chung also said Samsung had not been approached by the Canadian firm for a takeover.
The Boy Genius Report website cited an unidentified source as saying that RIM co-chief executive Jim Balsillie was meeting with companies interested in either licensing its software or buying a part or all or RIM, with Samsung leading the pack. (ANI)
