After garnering some additional attention from carriers for Windows Phone 7, Microsoft is teaming up with Verizon Wireless to help promote Windows Phone 8, which is due out later this year. Verizon’s Chief Financial Officer, Fran Shammo said that Verizon is looking to make Windows Phone their third platform behind iOS and Android.
“We’re really looking at the Windows Phone 8.0 platform because that’s a differentiator. We’re working with Microsoft on it”
While the Windows Phone platform continues to grow it will be interesting to see what other interest they can garner as time gets closer to Windows 8.0 holiday release.
Rumors are constantly flooding the web, its part of the technology world. But what we just stumbled upon may be more then just a rumor. A Vietnamese site has just posted a video of them playing around with the new Samsung Galaxy S III.
Where did it come from? We don’t know. What we do know from the leak is that Samsung has decided to go with a 4.6-inch display with a 720 x 1184 resolution. A 1.4 GHz processor and 1GB of RAM keeps this Ice Cream Sandwich phone running like clockwork. On the back is a 8-megapixel camera with a 2050 mAh battery with NFC capabilities. The sight of a 2050 mAh battery is exceptional news as Samsung had promised that upcoming 2012 released phones would feature larger batteries. Storage wise there is 16GB included on the phone as well as a microSD slot for added memory.
One may argue that this whole video is fabricated and false, however, with Samsung’s official announcement right around the corner, this could the real deal.
Update: Unfortunately the YouTube video has been made private.
