Samsung- Windows Phone 8 at the end of the year, confirms WP8 runs Windows 8

Matt Brum, head of product management at Samsung, has told Techradar they are looking forward to delivering Windows Phone 8 handsets at the end of the year.

"We’re very much still focusing on Windows, and still have products in that area. We’re committed to delivering their products going forward,” he said.

"There will be more products, and the key thing for us is making sure we hit the right price points and segments for our customers.

"[Windows Phone 8] is coming at the end of the year, and will increase the capability of the platform, and Samsung is looking to optimise its devices on that.”

He hinted that Samsung will be delivering tablets running Windows 8, and along the way confirmed that Windows Phone 8 will run elements of the desktop OS.

"We’re very excited about [Windows Phone 8], as we’re one of very few manufacturers that can do the convergence story that we can – so the fact that Windows 8 covers everything from tablets to laptops to phones is very cool."

It is not clear if Samsung will release any more products prior to Windows Phone 8’s release, but, much like HTC, the suspicion is that we will have to wait another 6-9 months before we see any new Samsung Windows Phone handsets.
