Samsung lagging behind the Windows Phone OS race

We all know how powerful Samsung is when it comes to its Android OS devices (smartphones and tablets alike i.e Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2), but recently it widened its horizon by producing smartphones that runs on the Windows Phone 8 OS platform. Suddenly, the world’s biggest smartphone brand is off to a bad start in the Windows Phone 8 OS race. Samsung_ATIV_S_Windows_Phone_5

Yes, Nokia and HTC released its Windows Phone 8 powered devices and both of them are doing good. HTC is also running its major smartphones using the Android OS, but the company is not doing that bad in their Windows Phone 8 devices department unlike the Korean tech giant.

According to a British website, the Nokia Lumia 920 (Windows Phone 8 powered device) is now at the top 5 and the Nokia Lumia 820 is at the top 10. Samsung’s ATIV S on the other hand is not even a part of the said top 10 list.

The Nokia Lumia 920 Black variant currently holds the number one spot on the best-seller list and the Yellow variant of the device is on the pre-order Expansys UK list. You will not find the ATIV S on that list, but the Grey ATIV S is at number 8 on the pre-order list.

Meanwhile at Expansys Germany, three Nokia Lumia models are ahead of Samsung’s ATIV S. Expansys France’s result is also showing that Nokia Lumias are trumping on Samsung’s ATIV S on the most popular phone lists from Phonehouse Germany and the UK. Phones4U, with the two Nokia Lumias are on its front page list of eight contract models.

When it comes to the WP8 OS race, this only shows that Samsung had a slower start, with Nokia rolling out the Lumia 920 back in November and HTC getting its budget devices the 8S third week of December. Yes, it has been three weeks now and the ATIV S still appear to lag heavily behind the Lumia models and HTC’s Windows Phone 8 devices.
