Lackluster demand for Windows tablets and phones says Samsung CEO

New Samsung CEO says there is 'lackluster demand' for Windows tablets and phones | The Verge: "What about your relationship with Microsoft? Has it changed after Nokia began to work more closely with Microsoft on Windows devices? Smartphones and tablets based on Microsoft's Windows operating system aren't selling very well. There is a preference in the market for Android. In Europe, we're also seeing lackluster demand for Windows-based products."

Samsung CEO Shin interview: Windows demand lacking | BGR: ". . . . Jun Dong-soo, the head of Samsung’s memory chip business, said last week that Windows 8 was “no better than Vista” and had failed to reignite demand for personal computers. Given that Samsung relies primarily on Android and is planning to launch its own Tizen mobile platform in the near future, the company apparently doesn’t see any reason to play nice with Microsoft at all anymore. . . ."
