Will the Galaxy and Mango meet?

The Samsung Galaxy S II has being doing fabulously. The slim, sleek phone with its power packed features has garnered much acclaim from critics and users, who have lapped it up 3 million times since launch to make it Samsung’s fastest selling device, ever. And the phone’s not even released in US yet.

Now, obviously with such a blockbuster brand in hand, it would be only wise to ‘expand’ the line a little to include other testy waters, and it seems Samsung is doing just that. According to a report from, Galaxy S II’s official model number is SGH-i927, however a new model with the designation of SGH-i937 has been spotted at Bluetooth SIG website. So? Well, it just so happens that the Bluetooth profile on the phone matches the one on the upcoming “Mango” update for Windows Phone 7, suggesting that Samsung could be looking to bring their popular mobile brand for Windows Phone fans.

There are no further detail available on the device, however it is likely that some additional features will be added in to make it more compatible with Microsoft’s operating system. Otherwise the device’s 4.3″ screen, dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8MP snapper seems quite dandy to me.
