The biggest Android vendor Samsung is now gearing up to launch Microsoft’s OS Windows Phone 8 as soon as this October. Samsung Taiwan also responded to reporters that they will not be launching Windows Phone 7 (Mango) lineup, going directly towards the Microsoft’s next big smartphone OS.
Regarding the company’s stance on not launching the Windows Mango OS, Samsung thinks that the Mango OS wasn’t powerful enough to be equipped with high-end, feature rich smartphone devices of today.
At the moment Nokia is the biggest vendor when it comes to Windows Phone smartphone devices but when compared to other Android and iOS devices, Microsoft platform has yet to be proven its worth on mobile platform.
Nokia, which ditched its Symbian OS last year in favor of a collaboration with Microsoft, has already earmarked itself as a key player in the Windows Phone game. That said, the Lumia 800 and recently released Lumia 900 have yet to make the huge market impact that both Microsoft and Finland-based Nokia would have liked.
Microsoft partnering with Samsung seems to be the best choice for the Redmond company since the Korean giant is the best vendor (excluding Apple) at the moment with it’s best selling smartphone lineup : Galaxy S2, Galaxy Y etc. It will definitely help Microsoft to be incorporated with such a company that majority of the Android users love and use.
