Micromax To Launch Windows Phone Devices Next Year

After hiring Hugh Jackman for the Canvas Turbo and revealing its intentions of entering European markets via Russia, the Indian smartphone brand is also planning to launch LTE and Windows Phone smartphones. Due to the rising popularity of Windows Phone devices in the affordable smartphone segment, Micromax is probably hoping to provide a cheaper Lumia alternative in the market. One thing is for sure, any OEM joining the platform is a good news for the Windows Phone ecosystem.

In an interview with the Economic Times, Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma revealed that Micromax would launch its LTE smartphones in December, “We want to establish ourselves on LTE and offer products that are LTE ready by December, so that consumers would not need to change their handsets whenever voice over LTE becomes available, be it six months or eight months later,” Sharma is quoted as saying.
