Nokia announced a while back that they intend for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform to be their major smartphone platform, and the deal between Nokia and Microsoft will enable Nokia to invest heavily in Windows Phone 7.
Now it would appear that Nokia intends to price its Windows Phone 7 devices competitively, particularly against the wide range of Android smartphones produced by a variety of manufacturers.
Nokia’s Chris Weber recently told Business Insider that it intends to release a wide range of Windows Phone 7 devices, which will run Windows Phone 7 Mango, and they will price several of the devices at a lower price than the cheapest Android smartphones.
This is a smart move by Nokia, as cheaper devices will appeal to consumers and could help Nokia sell Windows Phone 7 smartphones and also help Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform become more popular.
