The rumors also suggested that two of them were to run the ‘Apollo’ update of Windows Phone. The Taiwanese branch of Samsung has confirmed that at least one phone running this software will be sold as soon as October.
 
Samsung Taiwan responded to reporters, explaining that Windows Phone 7.5 – ‘Mango’ – would be skipped in their country, making plain that Mango did not suit the high end devices of today, and that Apollo was better suited for them.
 
As iOS and Android are two main players in mobile operating systems right now, analysts and fans alike are very interested in how Windows may affect the future of the field. Nokia withdrew from Symbian last year, forming collaboration with Microsoft along with other companies. This in itself is a considerable step forward in Microsoft’s growing presence in the mobile market.
 
In February, Samsung’s head of product management, Matt Brum, said that “[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.” 
 
Samsung is the largest smartphone vendor on earth, surpassing even Apple. In fact, it is the largest vendor of mobile phones at all, having surpassed Nokia by millions of phone shipments. Samsung’s dominance in the market – coupled with its willingness to support Windows Phone 8 – projects an interesting future for Windows Phone.
