We don’t want to buy BlackBerry, we only seek partnership: Samsung
Amid reports that South Korean tech giant Samsung who is currently cruising as world’s largest mobile phone brand wants to acquire BlackBerry, the recovering Canadian enterprise phone maker, company officials from both sides have come out to rubbish the stories, saying there’s no chance Sammy is buying BB.
While it’s normal for companies to play down rumors during these kind of happenings till everything is confirmed, this deal looks like a goner as Samsung Mobile number one man J.K. Shin has told journalists that his outfit isn’t interested in buying BlackBerry, rather, would like to strike a partnership with the software division of the company.
“We want to work with BlackBerry and develop this partnership, not acquire the company,” CEO Shin explained. “We value all of our relationships.”
Samsung and Blackberry recently penned down an agreement where Samsung leased the Canadians’ BlackBerry’s Enterprise Server for security purposes. Similarly last year, the wife of John Chen, BlackBerry’s CEO was reported to prefer Samsung phones to his husband’s handsets at BB.
