Samsung: Symbian – OFF, Windows Phone 7 – ON

Doua stiri extrem de interesante, amandoua venind din partea aceleiasi companii, Samsung.

Prima: Samsung renunta la suportul pentru sistemul de operare mobil Symbian incepand cu data de 31 decembrie 2010. Apune o era la Samsung, Symbianul nu mai prezinta interes pentru publicul larg. Personal imi pare rau. Am butonat la vremea lui un telefon Samsung cu Symbian care mi-a placut foarte tare, Innov8. Recunosc totusi ca, acest sistem de operare este oarecum depasit de vremuri.

A doua: Tot ei anunta ca, pana la sfarsitul anului, vor lansa pe piata cateva modele de smartphone-uri bazate pe Windows Phone 7, in America, Asia dar si in Europa. Prin lansarea unor astfel de terminale vor sa acapareze o cota de piata mai importanta. Noile smartphone-uri vor avea configuratii hardware de ultima generatie si vor dispune de aplicatii diverse, atat de business cat si pentru divertisment. Amintim de Xbox Live, Office, Zune, Windows Live sau Bing.

Deci, Samsung se vor focusa pe telefoane cu Android, Bada si Wp7. Dupa cum au declarat mai demult, 50% vor fi terminale cu Android, 33% cu Bada si restul cu Wp7, daca gandim logic. Nu? Poate, intre timp, s-au mai schimbat strategiile. Parca un 33% pe toate liniile ar suna mai bine. Ramane de vazut cat de fiabil este noul SO Mobil de la Microsoft.
