Rumor: Microsoft Launching MS Branded WIndows Phone in 2013? (WP Surface)October 1, 2012 4 Comments
There is a nasty rumor going around that Microsoft will be launching its own branded Windows Phone in the first half of 2013. China Times is reporting that Microsoft has been developing its own MS branded Windows Phone for the last 4 months. They are also stating that Microsoft has hand picked a manufacturer to do the deed.
I call bullshit on this as Windows Phone not only has Nokia on its side churning up devices that push technology forward but it has also gained HTC as they are focusing more now on Windows Phone and less on Android. Where the Microsoft Surface tablet is needed in the PC industry to lead and push all the manufacturers into making better products, Microsoft already has that with Nokia.
Besides, I doubt they would of let HTC brand their phones as ‘Windows Phone’ 8x and 8s if they had plans to make their own devices.
