    I4U News have published an extremely positive article on why Samsung diggs Windows Phone quoting Matt Brum as saying, "We're very excited about [Windows Phone 8], as we're one of very few manufacturers that can do the convergence story that we can - so the fact that Windows 8 covers everything from tablets to laptops to phones is very cool.".

    Samsung Wants Windows Phone 8 Phones - I4U News

    I don't know about anyone else, but it's extremely refreshing to hear such positive comments from one of the biggest OEMs out there.

    Discuss. :)

    It's exciting stuff. . . maybe I've got a wild imagination, but I think: Samsung Window running Windows 8 synced to an Xbox, Windows Phone 8 and Win 8 tablet.

    Now that is some SERIOUS AWESOME SAUCE. :)

    ^^Yeah, I remember reading the same buddy. They just said that they don't intend to release anymore devices until Apollo.... which, TBH, makes perfect sense.

    Interesting that OEMs have no problem releasing an Android device (or two) every month, without regard for what dessert is on board. Why so much distinction between post-Mango, Tango and Apollo. Not like "any" Android phone is "guaranteed" an upgrade to the next OS version. Curious.

    For all we know, Windows 8 is going to be a BIG leap from Mango. Further more, if current gen devices aren't going to be pushed to Apollo, it would make perfect sense for Samsung to wait.

    Something else to consider is that, once WP becomes a household name, I'm sure OEM's will have no problems putting out devices frequently... once they have the confidence they'll sell.

    Ha! :D Being honest, I wouldn't be too disappointed having a SGSII in disguise for a Apollo device. :)

    I'm dating a girl who has a SGSII. It's the first time I've had a chance to see one up close and, I have to admit that it's a damned nice looking phone (seems to work pretty well too). Definitely wouldn't object to having a WP available on that hardware.

    Think they said the same thing a while back and then basically sat on their hands. Personally I think all these OEM's apart from Nokia are going to do the same thing with WP8 that they've done to date with WP7, which is the bare minimum. I definitely dont take the words quoted seriously, PR is one thing, executing is another. No ads, no Focus S equivalent for Europe says a lot more about their commitment.

    +1 on theefman. Thats what i think about samsung aswell.. I Haven't seen a single commercial for there wp phones. In fact if i wasn't on this forum i wouldn't know they did WP mobiles at all.. But i see ads for Nokias wp almost everyday on tv, at bus stops in stores and so on. And i do see commercials for Galaxy SII, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Mini and Nexus..

    They never came out and said anything definite about giving up Someone inferred that because they werent coming oyut with any other devices after the focus s. At least thats how I remember it! I am glad they are onboard for windows8 phones I am still thinking hard about the 900 but may wait for Apollo now if its going to be another 6-8 months.

    Why reinvent the whell if you dont have to. If it allows you to get the product to market that much quicker whats wrong with that!?

    Absolutely. A friend of mine has one and it's fantastic... it's just a damn shame it's got a ugly OS on it. :D

    To be honest, I've hardly seen any Samsung phone adverts -period- here in the UK.

    Samsung won't push a platform when it already has another that is selling their products like hot cakes. Unfortunately it's just business... but fortunately for Windows Phone, we have Nokia and Microsoft running the show. Those two alone are enough for Windows Phone to truly penetrate the market.

    I'm just happy that Samsung are giving praise to Windows Phone, and secondly, we're going to see some lush hardware from them come Apollo.


    Hey, come on guys... give a guy a break here... just trying 'up' the mood around here instead of reading threads predicting the end of WP, etc etc. :D

    HEY LOOK Samsung Android sales like hot cakes, so lets do advertising on a phone that doesn't . so we can start selling IT like hot cakes.

    that makes more sens to me then pushing a phone that pushes it self!!!!

    Businesses like to de-risk every situation. Spending millions promoting a platform that isn't very well-known doesn't comply with that attitude... especially when their sales are already booming.

    Would Nokia have backed WP 110% if their sales were up there with Samsung's?? Pretty sure they wouldn't have.

    Dont see anything changing with WP8. Nokia is advertising their WP7 devices and guess what, they are actually getting sales and associating their brand with WP7. Without them WP7 would be absolutely bottom of the barrel. If Samsung put a little effort behind WP7 they too would get results. Its really no excuse to say WP7 isnt selling therefore they wont push it, if they wont push it how will it sell?

    What worries me though is the lack of movement in the US. Seems we are back to "waiting" before we see any signifacant push for WP adoption, this time for Windows 8. Meanwhile Nokia is doing superbly compared to other WP OEM's. Question is will this wait pay off? It just seems like leaving huge amounts of time for android and ios to cement their trance-like hold on consumers is not a particularly good idea but again, as it happened back at launch and again before the Mango release it seems MS is content to wait for some magic bullet again before they really get behind WP. We may wait though, but I doubt the market will.

    Why don't MS give Samsung and HTC millions to advertise like they did with Nokia. I don't see Sammy or HTC pushing MS platform. Esp. since MS is taking money for every Android phone sold.
