MetroPCS to Carry Windows Phone 8 Handsets

August 27, 2012 1 Comment

It looks like Sprint and Cricket will be the only ones not to offer a Windows Phone when Windows Phone 8 arrives later this year. MetroPC has now confirmed via an interview with FierceWireless that they are working on securing a Windows Phone 8 handset.

MetroPCS COO Tom Keys:

Windows Phone 8 we think has a place in the portfolio. We’re actually working  with a manufacturer right now on bringing Windows Phone 8 to marketplace. We  think we want to offer it. Similar to what Apple did–you have the iMac at the  house, you have the iBook for the office, you have the iPad for the couch and  you have your iPhone. If you own the home screen, now with multiple devices,  they have a very good opportunity for calendars and sharing content, and this  looks like it’s Microsoft’s opportunity to go there. Secondarily, I think Nokia  is going to be the bellwether there for how well it does since they’ve made a  large bet on Windows Phone 8. So at the end of the day, we think it’s  interesting and competition among operating systems is good for the ecosystem.

This is all good news for Windows Phone as it looks to be offered on a lot more carriers than the first time around. Hopefully MetroPC can get their hands on a WP8 phone before years end.
