Thinking...what kind of company they might buy...Samsung already manufactures - Processors, Display, Storage...not sure about radio equipment!

You need to read the article more carefully: "he also said that Samsung had no plans to buy ailing handset manufacturer RIM."

They said a software related company not a handset manufacturer.

Why/how could they buy Motorola? Didn't Google already acquire them? I don't think Google would hand it over, much less so soon after the purchase.

I wish someone would purchase SPB, makers of the SPB Shell 3D launcher and incorporate it into their phone. I REALLY like the way it handles folders.
That smart stay function sounds epic!

Strong software firms will be acquired to build apps for Samsung's own SDKs like the S Pen, AllShare, and possibly the new ones - S Voice, S Beam, etc. This move would cement Samsung's lead over other manufacturers which only focuses on hardware and not the ecosystem.
