All negative crap. Seriously hope Samsung don't get their paws on RIM. QSX is too sophisticated for Samsung and they'd just popularize it onto a carnival side show event. Hope RIM can get back alone,turning out a quality,niche product that has integrity as its centeral core value. There'll always be a BlackBerry in my heart and top shirt pocket.

If Sammy is making so much coin off of their Android effort, why would they even be interested in an OS that is going nowhere fast? If BB10 starts to grow like wildfire, maybe it would be worth Sammy's attention. But in the time it will take for BB10 to be released by RIM, Sammy will probably sell more Android-based devices than RIM will sell of BB10 devices in an entire year.

It would be smarter to wait and see if BB goes anywhere. Samsung doesn't need them right now but if BB fails Samsung could get BB IP cheap instead of keeping BB afloat and paying licensing fees. Much smarter way to go.

oh no.. no no no NOOOO!!! not samsung... RIM should still and will be independent forever!!! samsung makes crappy phone and its OS (bada) looks ugly as hell (and tizen looks like a rip off of android!!) unlike BB10 which looks magnificent as heaven!

i hope no one buys RIM!! not nokia, not microsoft, not google and not samsung!!!!

but amazon would be a nice choice... but i hope they wont buy and RIM wont sold itself!!!

come on people we need more competition to these smartphone world!! not just iOS and crappy skinned android (the original android like nexus is not crappy but manufacturers like samsung with its stupid touchwiz destroyed android)

WP8 and BB10 will be the other choice!!! best of luck to these awesome OS!!!!

oh please... they make substandard phones... not even close to there apliances!

samsung for you might be the best.. but still there are people who dont like them...

and i was saying about the competiton...

iOS and Android is dominating.. and android has a lot of players and samsung play it best... even motorola makes awesome looking phone and hardware they cant de throne samsung same goes with sony...

so thats why i dont want samsung to touch RIM and BB10!!! RIM still has a lot of tricks on its sleves... it might be a real iOS contender because they are both smartphone centric.. but RIM will fail in terms of apps! the android contender is also BB10 but WP8 has a lot of something to show off! dont forget about Jolla OS (MeeGo base OS by ex nokia people) and they are growing fast!

FACT: even ship owners prefer made in USA and Japan products than made in China and south Korea just to be safe!

do you think is android dont exists samsung will be this big? you're stupid comments are dumbier that you!

im not an apple fan.. i just like apple... and even some android fans see samsung a real copycat!

what im saying is.. samsung shouldnt buy RIM and BB10 has more promising quality than android did to the new jelly bean.. they only bring a search assistant.. and apple did that done that...

come on men.. we need some more contenders to this game!!! not just a 2 horse race! iOS family and android nation is dominating.. we need to see BB10 empire and WP8 kingdom on the game!

well i'll know you will thumbs down me.. but please stop being a die hard fan!
