Is Samsung lining up a Windows Phone Mango version of the Galaxy S II?

Is Samsung lining up a Windows Phone Mango version of the Galaxy S II?We've already been musing about Windows Phone's prospects this morning, and if the Microsoft platform is going to kick on it'll clearly be through next-generation handsets that haven't yet seen the light of day.

One such device could be a Windows Phone version of the Samsung Galaxy S II – essentially a follow-on to the current Omnia 7 – and we've caught wind that Samsung has just such a phone in the works.

Once again it's the chatty folks over at WMPowerUser dishing the details, drawing our attention to a Samsung SGH-i937 that has just popped up at the Bluetooth SIG.

The handset in question apparently shares its Bluetooth profile with Windows Phone Mango, hinting that it's a Samsung handset running the forthcoming update to Windows Phone 7.

Considering that the Omnia 7 is a Windows Phone 7 version of the original Galaxy S, it's not much of a stretch, then, to suggest that this new handset, which will probably launch around a year later, will effectively be a Mango-flavoured take on the Galaxy S II. Sounds like quite a prospect...

I have no idea how two devices running entirely different software can possibly be the same?!

HTC HD2. Runs Windows Mobile 6.5, Android and/or Windows Mobile 7.

Yes, Kai, but the moment you put Android or Ubuntu on the HTC HD2 it is no longer a HD2. You'll notice, cause the HD2 manual makes no sense anymore ;)

you can fit a Porsche 911 engine into a VW Beetle. Is that still a Beetle?
