Analyst accuses Samsung of not wanting Windows Phone success

0. phoneArena 13 Mar 2013, 15:57 posted on

Unlike the Android ecosystem (and the overall smartphone ecosystem around the world), Samsung is not doing all that well with Windows Phone. Windows Phone has been dominated by Nokia, which isn't much of a surprise given the partnership between Nokia and Microsoft. But, an analyst is now saying that Samsung actually isn't doing well with Windows Phone because the company doesn't want to see the platform succeed...

I replied to what he(tuss) said;

Sammy dont focus on WP because they dont want to make WP popular so Nokia can earn some money from it.

Isnt that what he just said? or am i too bright to imply?

he means if more companies make wp device obviously exposure will increase and this would effect samsungs dominance as customers may make the transition from samsungs android devices to there wp8 devices and then to competitor devices from nokia

watch the thumbs down from upset fanboys

I think because of Samsung knows that there is no any great technology to against Nokia. If Nokia also use Android Samsung will because Second or Third

Ok....why would Samsung care if Nokia is successful? They are competing with Nokia in WP land.

I could understand if you said they didnt wanna see WP or MS successful.

Correct. It also shows if Nokia went with android they would have F**ked Samsung there as well!

But I for am happy they did not go with android because these fanboys think everything should be android!

I want Nokia to succeed because they make the best designs and bring the best Innovations and have a Sh*t load of patents! but I'm still not sure about WP

the question is, why Nokia does not want to make Android succed?? they wanna make special phones with "their" OS like they did with Symbian....I dont know for how long they will succeed, but this is kind of a clever movement, since NOW, i dont know later, they make the best MS phones....of course, with almost no competition, thats becomes an easy achievement.

One of the main reason Nokia did not go with Android is Google did not want them to use their Nokia maps on the platform! So one would say Google was scared of Nokia maps being better then their Google maps.

I think it's not Samsung's fault but Microsoft's. Samsung offered Ativ S which is great but didn't succeed as expected, therefore, it wasn't launched in all countries. That was really a pitty. I like that phone! :( Hopefully we will see more phones (and better ones) coming from Samsung with WP :D

The Ativ S is an inferior device compared to the Lumia 920, and so why would anybody buy it? If Samsung stops making WP8 devices, then so be it. Does anybody really care?

You're right, no one cares about WPs, except may be Nokia fanboys.

so those who bought the HTC 8s and 8x are nokia fanboys?

please go hate elsewhere, i know you try and act like your reasonable but your the same as the other android fanboys who cant just accept other os's are good to push competition and that android isnt for everyone and isnt perfect

Google will care soon enough, when WP starts stealing a significant porition of Android market-share ;o)

No one cares about android except android fanboys. No one cares about iOS except iOS fanboys. No one cares about Symbian except Symbian fanboys. No one cares about BB10 except BB10 fanboys. Dude whats your point. All os's have their fans, and some like myself like multiple ones " iOS android, and wp8"
