New Windows Phone 8 devices appear in server log, including one from Samsung
There has been a fair amount of chatter recently about Samsung and its support or lack of support for Windows Phone, but if we're to believe the server log from a popular wallpaper app, Samsung may be getting ready to release a new Windows Phone 8 device. The log also includes a few other interesting devices.

The log comes from Chinese app Love Wallpaper HD, and shows one device from Huawei (H889L), one from Samsung (SCH-I930), and two from Nokia (RM-860_nam_usa_100 & RM-877_nam_att_205). Since Huawei doesn't have too many devices in the pipeline, it's assumed that the device shown here is the Ascend W2. It's unclear what any of these model numbers might actually point to though.

The closest model number in Samsung's book is the GT-i19300, which is the Galaxy S III. The model numbers in Samsung's WP lineup don't help at all with the Ativ S codenamed GT-I8705, and Aive Odyssey is SGH-T900M. Then obviously the Nokia devices are destined for the US, but there's no way to tell what they might be. Perhaps one is the Lumia 928, and one is the rumored Catwalk, but we can't say for sure.

So this is what happens when Bill Gates goes in and regulates things... Nice to see Sammy doing something! Would have really liked to see the Ativ S reach carriers... Oh well, we'll see whats to come (or maybe come).

No way Samsung can penetrate in wp. It surely cannot Win against Nokia in this sector

Samsung's WP8 flagship will probably compete with 720 and still lose in design :D

Well, Samsung can't stand up beside Nokia in many ways, but it will be appreciated if Sammy releases a gs4 similar with same specs with Windows phone, will be so competitive one.

But, still Windows phone has been Nokia's play cards!

Samsung can't compete Nokia in Windows Phone. These are not my views, this is the reality we can see by sales figure and popularity Samsung Ativ S.

RM-860 is the Lumia 928 for VZW. You had an article about it already PhoneArena...

RM-877 is believed (hoped) to be the EOS.
