Samsung to drop Symbian support, keep WinMo Last week we reported the rumor of Samsung preparing to phase out the Windows Mobile smartphone OS while at the same time increasing usage of Android and Bada.
Company senior vice president Don Joo Lee is saying however, that WinMo is here to stay, and it is instead the Symbian OS which will be completely dropped, mainly to the advantage of Bada, Samsung's new proprietary OS.

The change will take place starting in 2010, with the Omnia HD being the last phone to incorporate the OS.

Lee says he expects total Samsung shipments to increase to 220 million units in 2010 and the company will "continue to strengthen its deployment in HD displays, high performance CPUs and LTE technology for handsets."
