In what would be a major coup for the technology giant, rumours have surfaced suggesting the Microsoft has landed the UK’s top selling phone the Samsung Galaxy S2 on their new mobile operating Windows Mobile 7.
Sammy is could be expected to launch the Window Mobile 7 version alongside the up-and-coming Windows Phone 7 Mango update.
According to new sales figures the Android 2.3 Gingerbread powered Samsung Galaxy S2 handset has shifted a company record 3 million units in just 55 days.
Reports from the Korean company suggests the tech giant plans to launch a Windows Phone 7 version of the powerful handset to coincide with the arrival of the operating system’s upcoming Mango software update.
The reports have surfaced after a new Samsung handset, dubbed the Samsung SGH-i937 turned up on Bluetooth SIG, sparking rumours Samsung had a replacement for its first WP7 handset, the Samsung Omnia 7, for a Galaxy S2.
The Samsung Galaxy S II has been the highest selling smartphone in the UK for the past two months toppling Apple’s iPhone 4 thanks to a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording credentials and a super-slim form factor.
The Galaxy S2 is flying off the shelves at the moment and is the top selling Android phone – having beaten the iPhone 4’s sales last month the Galaxy S2 is showing itself as more than a flash in the pan. It’s not all doom and gloom for Apple as they still maintained their second position in the top 10.
