Last week Microsoft launched their new Surface Tablet, which lead to quite a bit of speculation that the company would also be releasing their own Windows Phone devices.
Obviously if Microsoft were to release their own Windows Phone device, we could imaging that their manufacturers who have been making Windows Phone devices would be less than happy, and now Microsoft has confirmed that they have no plans to build their own Windows Phones.
Microsoft’s Greg Sullivan, who is a senior marketing manager for Windows Phone was recently asked if Microsoft would be releasing their own Windows Phone devices, an according to him Microsoft have no plans to make their own smartphones.
Considering the strong partnership between Microsoft and Nokia, and the amount of money Microsoft is paying Nokia to produce Windows Phone devices, we doubt the company would look to produce their own handsets.
