ZTE will release a smartphone with Windows Phone after the Nokia deal Microsoft
After the news that Microsoft is buying the mobile business Nokia, other manufacturers of smartphones with Windows Phone, it seems, pulled away from the platform. This is logical, because it is not clear what will happen next and whether it makes sense to make another attempt in this area.
The Chinese from ZTE, however, believe that the mobile operating system from Microsoft you need to give it another chance, and officially announced that after the deal between Nokia and Microsoft will be finally closed, they will release a new model based on WP.
ZTE have a cursory experience with Windows Phone. In the past they released one model with Windows Phone 7, and the models with the current platform version is not yet available in the catalogue, but in early 2014, the Chinese plan to return to WP.
The decision was taken after the meeting with the Microsoft representatives, who assured ZTE that they will receive all the necessary support, if you dedicate yourself to the creation of new models with Windows Phone.
Let me remind you that ZTE is one of the leading smartphone manufacturers in the world. The catalogue consists of a rich variety of platforms starting with Android. The company is also one of the early supporters of Firefox OS from Mozilla.
Meanwhile, the deal between Nokia and Microsoft was approved by the shareholders of the Finnish company and it is expected to be closed in the first quarter of 2014.
