Update: This was just an unsubstantiated rumor according to a Samsung spokesman: "We haven't considered acquiring the firm and are not interested in (buying RIM)" - Reuters.

It's no secret that RIM (Research in Motion) has seen better days; in fact, its stock dropped a whopping 75 percent last year alone. Considering the downward spiral, the company's CEOs are looking for a way out, be it a sale or licensing its Blackberry software.

The latest word on the street is that RIM has a potential buyer: Samsung. According to BGR, RIM is "going hard after Samsung," but Sammy isn't biting just yet because the price is too [damn] high. Rumor has it that RIM CEOs are trying to get between $12 and $15 billion for the company and all of its assets, which is a far cry above the $8.5 billion that the company is actually worth.

If, however, Samsung is able to negotiate a deal and buys RIM, imagine the changes that could potentially make for Android - that could put the green robot on the corporate map in a big way.
