Samsung going big with Windows Phone 7--double that of Android?
In a revealing, if not odd tid-bit out of AsiaOne News, Samsung seems pretty gung-ho about Windows Phone 7. What's interesting is how Samsung went from reportedly cold, to warm to now hot on Microsoft's mobile OS, even in the face of huge sales with Android.
The section of the long article, detailing smartphone growth in Asia and related companies (HTC, LG, Samsung, etc.), this was mentioned:
Next year, Samsung will introduce 15 to 20 new smart-phone models using Android, Windows, and Brada operating systems. For every 50 smart phones using Windows, it will make 24 using Android and five using Brada.
Certainly odd numbering there, though the interpretation for us is that Samsung will be making twice as many WP7 devices over Android. We already know that Sammy is a big player with Microsoft. Perhaps now we're seeing what that means.
Hey, if it means devices like the Samsung Focus (review), we're pretty psyched.
