[ Rumor ] No Windows Phone Samsung devices from 2013 ?

No Comments



This is just a rumor but coming from SamFirmware ( the guys who release various Sammy ROMS ) we think it might have some weight. We have seen the SamFirmware twitter account tweet about this rumor a couple of times Tweet1, Tweet2 and they believe Samsung will stop Windows Phone at the end of 2012.

Lets pause for a second and see why :

Samsung is doing great with Android, but they have pissed off Apple in the process and now their android tablet market is paying the price, ( more info wsj.com ) but Sammy is not reliant on just android and is said to announce a Windows 8 Tablet at Microsoft’s BUILD developers’ conference. ( more info washingtonpost.com ). Samsung could be worried that if they stick to just Android their Mobile lineup could possibly face the same sort of issue. The Samsung devices were well received by consumers using Windows Phone ( but there were some major issues with the rolling out of updates which annoyed a lot of users ) and windows phone could offer them something in the long run in the mobile space but .. Nokia and Microsoft has got in to a strategic alliance and Nokia will be given some extra privileges over the other OEMs , same goes for the recent Google Motorola acquisition from the Android camp .. now lets not forget Samsung has an in house Mobile OS called Bada and have recently released info about some new devices like The Samsung Wave 3, Wave Y, and Wave M running the latest version of Samsung’s Bada OS and the new Bada 2.0 updgrade bings a lot of new features like multi-tasking, Wi-Fi Direct , Near Field Communication (NFC), voice recognition, mobile payment, HTML5 and Flash for a ‘complete web experience’.( more info cnet.com ). So with that in mind let me paint you a picture :

Samsung Bada

What do you guys think ? Will we see more focus on Bada from Samsung ?
