India’s leading English daily TOI has reported from its sources that Indian manufacturer Micromax will be launching two Windows Phone 8.1 devices on coming Monday. One of the device will cater to Rs 6000-7000 price range and other will be priced in the range of Rs 10000-11000. Micromax will launch these two devices under its existing Canvas brand.
For those who don’t know about Micromax, it is one of the leading smartphone manufacturer in India and its USP has been devices with high-end specs at affordable pricing. So, let us see if it can bring significantly higher specs to the low-end of Windows Phone range as compared to existing Lumia range. What may help them is the fact that Microsoft has made Windows Phone free for vendors now.
Micromax is also expected to be joined by other two Indian manufacturers Lava and Karbonn in near future in offering affordable Windows Phone handsets.
