Yesterday we reported that Jefferies & Co. analyst, Peter Misek, claimed that BlackBerry 10 wouldn’t take any market share away from Apple. In Misek’s note to investors he additionally made the claim that Samsung would be the likely suitor for a RIM purchase or licensee of BlackBerry 10.

In a request for comment from All Things D, Samsung spokesperson said, “Samsung Electronics has not considered the acquisition of Research In Motion or licensing BB10.” Whether or not this is a true statement is anyone’s guess. Nevertheless, Misek’s claims did make RIM’s stock spike 10% today. However, Misek is known for making fanciful claims in the past.

If RIM were to partner with a new OEM, who would you want it to be? Samsung, HTC, LG? Sound off in the comments!
