Samsung steps back from Bada, will offer majority Windows Phone 7 next year Chinese site iMobile has posted a pie chart revealing Samungs' smartphone plans for 2011, and surprisingly the company has moved away from its own Bada OS and moved most resources into Windows Phone 7.
Samsung will sell 63 percent Windows Phone 7 devices, 32 percent Android devices, and just 5 percent Bada.

Windows Phone 7 saw its global launch this month, to mixed reviews and sales.

Android has jumped quickly into the second spot in global mobile OS sales, with tons of more powerful devices already promised for next year, including the flagship Nexus S, allegedly built by Samsung.

Regardless, it appears Microsoft's latest operating system fits into Samsung's future plans for smartphone "domination."

3 mobile OS's is more than enough, honestly I think windows 7 phones will fail, but maybe if they get huge support from samsung they might have more sucess

We are going to see most of the sideline OSs fall away now that you can get top-of-the-line phones for free with contract. No more reason to deal with some oddball phone that has no apps and no support.
