So, if I understand this rumor correctly, Samsung is trying to get iOS apps on its systems in a similar fashion as PlayBook to Android? Or, Samsung is trying to get the entire OS on its phones?
This rumor just wouldn't make any sense. Why would Apple agree to any of this, especially with a company running Jobs archrival OS?
I must be lost because iOS capability would never come to another manufacturer. I must have just misread some of the posts. Right?I survived the Storm of 2008 and the PlayBook of 2011.

- Hey, what did you expect ?
Once again, my source didn't explain the technical "how" and that point makes it hard to discuss about the validity of the rumor. I'm siding (and may be totally wrong) to believe it's possible. On that matter, it might be interesting to follow what's happening in the FaceBook area; they stated deploying their own app center, including Android and iOS "Facebook apps" : http://forums.crackberry.com/showthr...38#post7388938
P.S : The thread was about "what does it brings into the Samsung / RIM rapprochement rumor", adding later the perspective of QNX for other Samsung's multimedia devices...

The only think Samsung could do would be to make a set of libraries that would allow compiling iOS apps to Android APKs making it very, very easy for iOS developers to port their apps to Android. Should be doable.
iOS player (without iOS developers releasing a special version) is much less likely because there is DRM build in in the files.

If history is any guide, Apple has about 5 more years on top of the mobile heap and then we'll see who's next.
