    Samsung (SSNLF.PK) is merging its mid-range Bada OS with Intel's (INTC) Tizen platform, launched this fall in partnership with Samsung and others. The news adds to the momentum generated this week by Intel's mobile division, though it remains to be seen whether Samsung, which currently relies on home-grown and third-party ARM-based (ARMH) mobile processors, will adopt Intel's chips for its smartphones.

    DisplaySearch expects shipments of 9.7-inch display panels for iPads (a rough proxy for an estimate of actual iPad production) will rise 35% Y/Y in 2012, to 65M units. This should be doubly positive for expected iPad 3 display suppliers LG Display (LPL), Samsung (SSNLF.PK), and Sharp (SHCAY.PK), given Apple's (AAPL) reported plans to use costlier, higher-resolution display panels.

    A deal between Samsung (SSNLF.PK) and DirecTV (DTV) allowing the former's Smart TVs to directly access the latter's satellite feeds represents another nail in the coffin for set-top boxes, says Ryan Lawler. A decline in set-top box shipments caused by the growing use of direct-access technologies such as RVU would spell trouble for market leaders Cisco (CSCO) and Motorola (MMI).

    Bernstein's Pierre Ferragu sees Apple's (AAPL) global patent battles with Android vendors as a tempest in a teapot. Noting how HTC and Samsung (SSNLF.PK) have demonstrated or claimed workarounds (I, II) to Apple patents they've been deemed by courts to infringe, Ferragu expects the end result of all the squabbling will be "partial settlements" in which "essential and quasi essential" patents are cross-licensed.
