Lenovo In Talks With Microsoft On Custom Windows Phone Handsets
Lenovo is apparently in talks with Microsoft to produce custom Windows Phone smartphones, and if a deal is done it will be similar to the one Nokia has with Microsoft.
Lenovo are looking to release Windows Phone 8 devices with custom UI’s and apps, rather than releasing devices with the stock version of Windows Phone 8 on their future handsets.
Whether or not Microsoft and Lenovo will come to an agreement that will allow them to produce Windows Phone 8 devices which are customized like Nokia’s versions will remain to be seen.
Nokia is the only Windows Phone producer at the moment that has flexibility in what they put on their Windows Phone devices, because of their close partnership with Microsoft, although the devices they have released so far haven’t had their software modified a great deal from the standard version of Windows Phone.
