Samsung Offered $1 Billion By Microsoft To Produce WP DevicesBy cheatmaster 09:59 Sun, 18 Jul 2021 Comments
Nokia Lumia series of smartphones accounts for 90% of the Windows Phone eco-system. The support from the other manufacturers like HTC, Huawei and Samsung in developing WP powered smartphones has been rather poor, which is a cautilize of concern for Microsoft.
Having already acquired Nokia, Microsoft is now trying to motivate other global manufacturers to develop Windows Phone Operating System (OS) based smartphones. According to a tweet from Eldar Murtazin, Microsoft has offered an annual sum of $1 billion to Samsung if the Koreans start producing Windows Phone devices.
Another "good" news from Microsoft - company negotiate with Samsung and offer 1 billion support if vendor will produce Windows Phone devices— Eldar Murtazin (@eldarmurtazin) December 12, 2013
Back in the day Microsoft offered a similar deal to Nokia when they joined forces. As a part of the agreement, Nokia received $250 million every quarter from the Redmond giant as "platform support payments".
Unfortunately, there is no official word at the moment, so hold it all with a pinch of salt.
