According to media reports, Samsung has announced during the ongoing Mobile World Congress at Barcelona that it will be bringing out Windows Phone 8 smartphones when Microsoft releases the platform. It is to be noted that just a day before, Microsoft silently released the update for Windows Phone 7.5 code-named ‘Tango’, which targets the entry-level segment of the smartphones market.
Windows Phone 8, which is also known as Windows Phone Apollo, is anticipated to be the most comprehensive update for the Windows Phone 7 platform. The updated platform is expected to bring in support for Dual-Core processors, something that is not currently supported by the existing platform.
“We're very much still focusing on Windows, and still have products in that area,” said Matt Brum, head of product management at Samsung. “We're committed to delivering their products going forward.”
“There will be more products, and the key thing for us is making sure we hit the right price points and segments for our customers,” Brum added. “[Windows Phone 8] is coming at the end of the year, and will increase the capability of the platform, and Samsung is looking to optimize its devices on that.”
