FBI considers buying Samsung’s Galaxy line

BLADE NEWS SERVICES

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. is close to signing a deal to sell its popular line of Galaxy devices to the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, sources familiar with the situation said on Friday.

The deal would be a boost for Samsung, which is increasingly seeking to cater to the needs of government agencies, a niche long dominated by Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry Ltd.

The FBI, with more than 35,000 employees, uses mainly BlackBerry devices.
