Microsoft giving more money to Nokia, Samsung in effort to push Windows Phone 7 According to sources, Microsoft will pay $44 million total to Nokia and Samsung in the coming months to pump Windows Phone 7 in the UK.
Nokia will get the lion's share of the money ($31.5 million) and their first promo images have already leaked for the Nokia 800 (pictured).

Samsung will use the money to promote the Omnia W, which has a 3.7 inch 800 480 pixel Super AMOLED display, 1.4GHz processor, dual cameras and HSPA+ 14.4Mbps data support.



Nokia's "Nokia World" event is set for 10 days from now and the company is likely to unveil 2 new devices, each running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.
