    I know Samsung has recently put more effort into WP8. Has anyone else seen articles about how they might be slowing down on developing Tinzen? That could be a possible reason for the increased attention. He's a link to the article I saw about the topic.

    Interesting, but I'm not sure of the validity. It would be another reason for the added attention as of late. Who knows, it may just be a temporary restructuring of funds for financial reasons.

    I would say the reason is to keep their foot in any market they can. They want to do enough to keep their name in the WP game. If WP shows real signs of catching up on the other Big 2, they already have experience and some market share to quickly build a WP campaign. Just my thought...

    This is pure speculation on my part but I wonder if the delay has anything with them considering a possible acquisition of Blackberry.

    Whatever the case may be, it does look like they don't want all of their eggs in the Android basket.

    Samsung:
    1. Make Android phones
    2. Make a lot more Android phones
    3. Make OS that is kind of like Android but not Android but still kind of looks and acts like Android but isn't Android and make everyone think you're moving to that OS but then delay the releases and make more Android phones while the media speculates on your move to the new OS that you are delaying
