Nokia currently dominates the Windwos Phone arena with the highest market share, thanks to its Lumia range of handset that caters the need of users looking from a handset ranging from the entry-level Lumia 520 to the high-end Nokia Lumia 1520. HTC and Samsung do have their own limited Windows Phone handsets, but it’s been a while since both these companies introduced anything with Windows Phone 8.
Windows Phone OS has seen growth in 2013, and it might gain a little more followers in 2014 as some other OEMs are also considering to jump in the Windows Phone bandwagon. Now, a French OEM Archos showed its desire to introduce a Windows Phone handset later this year.
During an interview with TrustedReviews, Archos CEO Loic Poirier said, “We will launch a Windows Phone handset when the time is right.”
Although Poirier didn’t mention when users can expect a Windows Phone handset from Archos, but he did say the Windows Phone Market is mature enough. However, the company will put their focus on producing Android-based handsets and tablets for now.
How does this news sound to you? The manufacturer is known for making entry-level handsets, but would you prefer a handset from them rather than Nokia or any other OEM?
