Asian outfits look at RIM

Written by Nick Farell



Samsung sings no


Samsung has denied that it is buying RIM but there are few Asian electronics outfits that are interested in buying it. Product delays and profit warnings have eroded confidence in RIM, once at the cutting edge of smartphone technology for business users, and its management.

Last week Samsung was apparently in talks to buy the company but changed its mind.  Tipsters however think that LG,  HTC and ZTE, which don't have their own platform might want to buy it.. Samsung has its own platform called bada and is seeking to boost its presence by merging it with a platform backed by chipmaker Intel.  It just does not need RIM.

But the others might be looking for a way to get off the Android bandwagon after being sued by Apple and watching Google buying into Motorola.
