Samsung Chief Strategy Officer–“We have have a very tight partnership with Windows”

Recent rumours has had Samsung de-prioritising Windows Phone 7. Omar Khan, chief strategy officer for Samsung Telecommunications America has however told Engadget that they remain committed to Windows Phone 7.

Noting that Samsung had 2 of the best selling Windows Mobile devices, the Samsung Blackjack and Samsung Omnia, he goes on to say “We have a very tight partnership, we are lock step.”

Omar refused to be drawn on the date of release and the devices that would be released, but promised, despite Microsoft’s restrictions, the handsets will be differentiated.

“What I can tell you about Windows phone 7 and Samsung is that we will bring some of our hardware differentiation and a lot of the capabilities that we bring to a product perspective and a differentiation perspective to Windows Phone 7.” he said.

With LG doing DLNA I cant wait to see what Samsung brings to the table.
