Allegedly already first tests of their own Windows Phone 8
A few months ago we had already reported about their own smart phone from Microsoft. At the time, the company from Redmond did not want to know about it and denied the rumor of a self-government-built Windwos Phone 8. According to the motto “What cares me my talk of yesterday.”, The Mircosoft smart phone is now even in the test phase, Reports the Wall Street Journal. The information allegedly comes from official persons of a component supplier whose name does not want to be named.
For months, you speculated about your own smart phone from Microsoft. Since the Surface Tablet also brought its own tablet to the market for the first time, a phone does not seem to be excluded. The tested Microsoft smart phone should have a display diagonal between 4 and 5 inches, so one would follow the current trend of large screens. Apple’s newly released iPhone 5 measures 4 inches and the Samsung Galaxy S3 even 4.8 inches. That’s it, but also already, what there are specifications to report.
Certainly, the device will not be available in the near future. Apparently in the house Microsoft itself is not yet sure whether the self-built smart phone should go in series. After all, with Samsung, HTC and Nokia, you have competent partners who could bring enough momentum into the market. If this would not be possible, however, it would be quite conceivable that Microsoft with Plan B comes around the corner. With their own smart phone one would in any case continue to approach the Philisophie of Apple. So why not?
