First New Windows Phone Unveils by Samsung

World Technology News / First New Windows Phone > Samsung Electronics launched the world’s first smartphone using Microsoft Corp’s latest mobile software on Wednesday, only days after losing a crucial patent battle with Apple Inc.

Samsung First New Windows Phone

The surprise announcement at an electronics show in Berlin came a week before Nokia, which has a close partnership with Microsoft, is due to unveil its new Lumia smartphones in New York.


A U.S. federal jury found last week that Samsung had copied critical features of the iPhone and awarded Apple $1.05 billion in damages.


The decision led to speculation that Samsung and other handset makers using Google Inc’s Android system would be drawn toward Microsoft’s phone software, which Apple has not targeted with any patent complaints.


“This is just the first in a big lineup of new hardware that’s coming with Windows Phone 8, but it’s a seriously impressive opening salvo,” wrote Microsoft executive Ben Rudolph on a company blog showing off the new phone, called the ATIV S.


Microsoft gave a preview of its new phone software, called Windows Phone 8, in June, and promised the first phones would be on the market by the autumn [ID:nL1E8HK8OK].


Windows Phone 8 looks similar to, and is built on the same core code as Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 operating system, but is not the same product. Windows 8, which will run on tablets and PCs, is scheduled to launch on October 26. Agencies
