Microsoft and Google pay visits to Samsung

Microsoft and Google pay visits to Samsung
Samsung has quickly risen to the top of both feature and smartphone sales, and while it is getting ready to launch its own Tizen based smartphones this year, it has started receiving high-positioned guests from the Silicon Valley. Microsoft former head Bill Gates has visited Samsung at its headquarters and Google’s Larry Page is also expected to pay a visit to Korea this week.

This courtship by the big software makers clearly has a lot to do with what Samsung decides to push in its products and so far the company’s focus has been on Android for smartphones. Microsoft chairman Bill Gates met yesterday with Samsung vice chairman Lee Jay-yong and Samsung mobile head JK Shin. “We discuss cooperation opportunities with Windows 8 and other IT devices with Samsung,” said Bill Gates.

It is not yet clear what will be the exact topic of the upcoming Larry Page visit, but chances are Motorola, Android, and Samsung’s Tizen will all be the main topics. Page has scheduled a visit with Samsung on Friday, April 26th.
