I don't think Samsung really cares as long as they are selling phones. Think of it this way, Nokia has come out and sold a ton of WP devices proving that the phones will sell if they are done correctly. Samsung must be licking their chops at the fact they may be able to have the next big thing on W7 and Android.

Samsung galaxy s III with wp8 that's an interesting news. If this is true, then windows phone will have an increased share in a pie. What os share will it bite? Probably ios lol. If MS will allow to customize wp, samsung will be able to boost its market share, we knew that samsung can provide better hardware and software, nokia will be struggling again.

they did't used a dual core on sfs cause windows can run smoothly on 1 core only maybe they'll fit a better gpu than any other windows phone for better gameplay and as far as camera is a 12 megapixlr supporting 1080p video recording its ok. and galaxy s3 imo it will be a benchmark for all other android phones and as well as for iphone5

I have my doubts, we heard similar news last year and it never happened, and with the Nokia Microsoft Deal. I think It could be even less likely

Sounds good to me but if it doesn't come to TMO, can't buy it just like the Nokia L900. Because of that exclusive and lack of rumors if L900 coming to TMO, Nokia probably lost the othe half million sales to help bost 2nd/3rd quarter profits.

WP OS is SO boring it would be such a waste to put it on such high end hardware. Unless WP8 is going to be radically different, I just can't see the point.
