Samsung has unveiled two new mobiles running Microsoft's Windows Phone Mango as it shies away from Google’s Android.
Samsung's Focus S and its Focus Flash will use Windows Phone Mango as their Operating System (OS), while older Windows Phone 7 mobiles will receive a Mango update too.
Sansung's Focus S adheres to the minimalist design found on most Windows Phones, characterised by a dominant 4.3" Super-AMOLED screen and being powered by a 1.4GHz processer.
It also features an 8MP rear and 1.3MP front facing camera for video calling, and houses this tech in an 8.5mm body, which is the same width as the company's Android flagship, the Galaxy S II.
According to reports, the Focus S will be joined by the smaller Focus Flash, a 3.7" Super-AMOLED mango device.
Traditionally, Samsung's Windows Phone 7 devices are reserved for their Omnia range, with its current version being the loner Omnia 7.
Its sudden impulse to expand its Windows Phone offering three fold is an indication Samsung is hedging the risks associated with Android, since Google now owns competitor Motorola Mobility and faces litigation.
