We recently heard that Samsung were cancelling their Windows Rt devices in some European companies, and now Samsung’s JK Shin has said that there is not much demand for Windows based devices.
What about your relationship with Microsoft? Has it changed after Nokia began to work more closely with Microsoft on Windows devices?
Smartphones and tablets based on Microsoft’s Windows operating system aren’t selling very well. There is a preference in the market for Android. In Europe, we’re also seeing lackluster demand for Windows-based products.
Not exactly the best news for Microsoft, and their Windows based tablets and Windows 8 smartphones, when a company like Samsung who are selling lots of mobile devices and tablets with Android is not able to sell Windows based devices in the same volumes.
