We previously reported that RIM was pushing hard to be bought by Samsung.But Samsung isn’t interested in acquiring the company, reports Reuters.

This all started when Jonathan Geller of BGR cited an anonymous source saying that RIM CEO Jim Balsillie was shopping the company around, meeting with any company that might be interested “in either a part or all of RIM, in addition to having talks about licensing.”
