Samsung may be the king of Android land, but that doesn't mean that other platforms are not of importance to the manufacturer. In fact, the company appears to have big plans for the Windows Phone market, judging by what Samsung executives shared with Smarthouse
in a recent interview. There is a "very clear"
strategy that Samsung is going to follow in order to boost its presence on the WP arena; a strategy that Nokia – the company that currently reigns Windows Phone
turf with its Lumia smartphones
, should be very concerned about.
The Samsung Galaxy S III may serve as a basis for the first Windows Phone 8 smartphone made by Samsung
At least one Samsung smartphone and two tablets, all of which are to be based on Windows 8, are being planned at the moment. The smartphone, which is expected to be known as the Samsung Focus S II or something pretty similar to that, is expected to be "as good"
as the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy S III
, presumably both in terms of hardware and design.
Let us not forget, however, that Nokia is rumored to be working on next-gen Windows Phone 8 devices of its own. One of these devices is said to be codenamed Nokia Prodigy
, and rumor has it that it will be far superior when compared to Windows Phone devices of today. Nevertheless, whether it will be more successful of a product than the aforementioned Windows Phone 8 handset by Samsung is something that only time will tell.
