HUAWEI announced on May 22nd that it has become Microsoft’s globally first Windows Phone 8 provider and confirmed that it is working on the operation system of Windows Phone 8. The current known manufacturer of Windows Phone OEM are Nokia, Samsung, HTC, LG, Acer, ZTE, Dell, and Fujitsu.
HUAWEI’s Senior Vice President Yu Chengdong said on his micro blog last night that HUAWEI has become Microsoft’s globally first Windows Phone 8 provider.
Relevant information said previously that American operator Leap released they had contacted with Microsoft and planned to promote a series of WP8 cell phones at the end of this year or at the beginning of next year. The news is common, but what interests us is that Microsoft’s current main operator is AT&T, one of the largest operators in the United States, and Leap is a small operator focusing on low end market. Leap currently is selling some low price cell phones of ZTE and HUAWEI with the price ranging from RMB 500 to 900 Yuan, which means Windows Phone 8 may support some low price products.
The appearance of Low-end mobile phone of WP8 also means that, although WP8 may change its inner cores, system fluency will not decrease. Some people worried that the Tango cell phones may not be updated to WP8 due to the hardware bottleneck. Now the worries can be dispelled that there is not any limits on the update from existing WP7 to WP8.
