Samsung confirms Windows Phone 7 plans

Samsung has long been presumed to be a partner in the forthcoming Windows Phone 7 launch, but now the company has gone official with its intent.

Simon Stanford, head of mobile at Samsung UK and Ireland said: 'The addition of Windows Phone 7 devices to Samsung’s smartphone portfolio is a significant milestone. Samsung’s new Windows Phone 7 based smartphones will play a key role in reinforcing Samsung’s leadership in the smartphone market and commitment to providing a range of devices across a variety of platforms'.

'For years, Samsung has been a key partner in bringing new Windows phones to customers all over the world. Windows Phone 7 is an important release and we look forward to deepening our collaboration with Samsung on mobile devices and beyond, with our multi-screen strategy,' said Steve Guggenheimer, corporate vice president, OEM Division at Microsoft.

According to Pocket Lint, Samsung is promising to release, 'several Windows Phone 7 devices' this year, which will 'combine the latest hardware design and technology, while benefiting from Microsoft’s software and innovation heritage'.

Samsung has been producing some decent hardware of late, like the highly-rated Galaxy S Android smartphone. Mixing that with Microsoft's latest operating system could be an early recipe for success for both companies. As long as that operating system is up to scratch obviously.
