Samsung prepping pretty Windows Phones for Europe, as carriers shrug off the Focus S adaptation
France is awash with Nokia Lumia 800 bus stop ads and TV commercials, as we saw first hand during the holidays, and it only makes sense that the vibrant Windows Phone community there got some exclusive scoops on Samsung's WP plans for Europe, too.

They say that the Focus S is unlikely to be adapted for the European market, since the carriers think it is too similar in design to their Galaxy S II offerings, while the Samsung Omnia W is not getting the traction the company would like it to, so a new set of Windows Phone models is in store from the world's largest smartphone maker to capture the attention of spoiled Europeans.

The source, who is said to be "extremely reliable", also mentioned that these new Windows Phones from Samsung will be "beautiful", but no other details in terms of specs or release dates have been divulged. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, though, so we'll spare judgement until we say what Samsung has planned for its next line of Windows Phones.

Do not think Samsung will make phones with a design outshining the pretty Lumia. If i were you, i would go with the Nokia, it just has great feeling of the "fresh" Windows 7 and a design that is more appealing for some people than iPhones.
