Is Samsung saying bye bye to Windows Phone 7? A popular Samsung-focused tech blog seems to think so.
SamFirmware via their Twitter page have started the speculation that Samsung will dump Windows Phone 7 at the end of 2012. Says the tweet: "Samsung will support Windows phone till end 2012." (Excuse the grammar, they are from Amsterdam)

The site went on to say, "Samsung will check what the status is end next year. Samsung Will support till end 2012 for sure," leaving the conclusion open as to whether the company will continue support past next year.

Samsung currently has its own Bada operating system, available in Europe and Africa, and has said it will be placing more funding and focus on the smartphone OS.

Regardless, Samsung is releasing two new WP7 devices for AT&T with the updated Mango 7.5 firmware.
