Samsung to release a Galaxy S II Windows Phone 7 version?

Posted on Jul 5 2011 - 3:05pm by Julius

Samsung Galaxy S II is selling like crazy nowadays, and by reading its specs and online reviews, its safe to say that its a hot piece of hardware. Now, it seems like the company is about to try and use the phone’s success to make a new Windows Phone 7 device.

A number of reports said that clues to a possible release of a Windows Phone 7 version of the Samsung Galaxy S II have surfaced, and those are pretty convincing. It all started when a device labelled SGH-i937 appeared on the website of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (Bluetooth SIG). It appears that some of the model’s Bluetooth characteristics are the same with other Windows Phone 7 smartphones running Mango, and with its model number that is ten digits apart from the Galaxy S II’s (SGH-i927), this rumor might have some ring of truth to it.

Also, the model number was seen in a list of devices on Windows Phone 7 game developer Occasional Gamer. The page has been removed as of the time of writing.

So, if the speculations are correct, it will appear that soon enough, we will see a Galaxy S II that doesn’t run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.

The Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone has enjoyed massive success with the Android OS, and with the company’s interest in releasing variations of its smartphones and WP7’s increasing popularity, it seems like a good idea for the smartphone giant to try out another version of its most popular phone.
