Samsung backs Windows Phone 7 for the duration

All over by Christmas?

Security for virtualized datacentres

Samsung may only recently dismissed Windows Phone 7 as a minority interest smartphone OS, but that hasn't stopped it today announcing its "long-term commitment" to the platform.

The South Korean giant said is plans to launch "several" Windows Phone 7 devices this year globally.

Microsoft was, of course, on hand to cheer Samsung along as the handset firm reached this "significant millstone" - sorry, "milestone".

Samsung clearly needed 'encouragement'. Last month, one of its executives said it would focus on Android and Bada as its smartphones OSes of choice.

There is no demand for Symbian, Y H Lee, the marketing chief at Samsung's mobile phone division, said before noting that Windows Phone has only "professional, specialised demand".

Microsoft is expected to formally launch Windows Phone 7 on 11 October. ®
