Nokia's next generation Windows Phone will have to vie with Samsung for supremacy of Microsoft's ecosystem

Wondering what Nokia Oyj. (HEX:NOK1V) has in store for Windows Phone 8?  You're not alone.

Window Phone 8 is suddenly very well positioned, thanks to a potentially precedent-setting verdict against Android and Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KSC:005930) via Apple, Inc. (AAPL).  Samsung is already eyeing Windows Phone 8 as a potential safe haven from Apple's litigation, unveiling a gorgeous 4.8-inch Galaxy-like Windows Phone 8 handset.

That pickup is both good news and bad news for Nokia.  On the one hand, it brings attention to the Windows Phone platform, and by proxy Nokia's efforts.  On the other hand, it means that Nokia needs to step up its game because Samsung looks to be getting serious about Windows Phone.  Nokia and Samsung are already trading jabs on Twitter.

Now Nokia posted a teaser to YouTube:



...which suggests that a Windows Phone 8 device announcement is coming on Sept. 5 (5.9.2012 in European notation).  That's just seven days before Apple's anticipated iPhone 5 announcement.

It should be interesting to see what Nokia has cooked up.  Its first generation Windows Phone -- the Lumia 900 has been a mild sales success in the U.S., despite being exclusive to AT&T, Inc. (T) only.




"Well, there may be a reason why they call them 'Mac' trucks! Windows machines will not be trucks." -- Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer
