Apple-Samsung Trial: Two Upcoming Samsung Windows Phone 8 Devices Revealed
Court documents reveal that Samsung is planning to launch two Windows 8 smartphones this year.
The trial between Apple and Samsung has revealed many secrets about both companies, including early iPhone prototypes, what Steve Jobs thought about a 7in iPad, and now, Samsung's plan to launch two Windows 8 devices before year end.
The 'Odyssey' and 'Marco' Windows Phone 8 devices are marked as running the Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset in leaked court documents, reports The Verge. They will also have a dual-core 1.5GHz system-on-chip.
The Odyssey has been described by Samsung as an "iconic smartphone," and is set to have a 4.65in HD display and an 8-megapixel rear camera. It's listed as having NFC technology, which could be used in conjunction with Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 Wallet Hub and Tap + Send features. Apple is also expected to introduce NFC to its next generation iPhone.
The Marco appears to be a slightly smaller device with a 4in display and a 5-megapixel rear camera, the court documents reveal. Both phones will have 4G LTE capabilities too.

Microsoft has blacklisted a subordinate CA certificate that was wrongfully used to issue SSL certificates for several Google websites. The action will prevent those certificates from being used in Google website spoofing attacks against Internet Explorer users.
