Oppo to join the Windows Phone family

0. phoneArena 16 Jul 2013, 09:51 posted on

Well, it took a little longer than we would've liked, but the first signs that Oppo is serious on following through on its Windows Phone ambition have finally materialized into something a tad more official, compared to the leaky nature of how we usually come across such information – Oppo's Social Marketing Director, Li Ming, has posted several mock-ups of the Oppo Find 5 running Windows Phone on Sina Weibo (the Chinese Twitter equivalent), and for what it counts, we think it looks absolutely delicious...

But let's not forget that Microsoft and Sony do a GREAT job on tablets and laptops. If Sony produced Windows Phone devices, it would be my first choice!

But Playstation RULES!!! :D

Because WP8 has only a 3% marketshare most companies/app makers are ignoring it. The reason they are ignoring it is because they will make much more $ focusing their resources on Android/IOS apps and Android based phones.

Nice looking phone. Nokia could get some design competition from these guys.

Excellent addition to the Windows Phone family, their Android phones are top notch.

This won't sell well: cause consumers all over the world think that only Nokia sells WP.

This will be great news if the public only buys Nokia Wp, and no other.

Phone makers and Oems should all consentrate on " The one and only Android™ "

Leave WP to Nokia! And who buys WP nowadays....!

What can a WP8 phone do that an Android phone can't is the real question.

you're right, leave wp to nokia, unless you make quality hardware. But if you're a cheap Chinese oem cmpany, go for android, it's free, and cheap...the "one and only android", the only only one with lags and bugs, sometimes even explodes n your pants...

Well it's way much better than having no apps and games and very late updates. Lag very rarely can be considered. But Jellybean doez not lag.
My NokiaWp8 has hardly any apps and games, nor Root, no Roms, no Jailbreak! This is way much worser than iOs....
Even iOs and Android is much better.
WP8 Really. S U C K S ®

Saying that Android doesn't lag even with 4.xx and a quad core processor is naïve..

Nexus 4, galaxy s4 and HTC One running pure android do not lag unless you install bloatware. Ever.

Nexus 4 is the best bang for buck especially if your going to install a custom rom on it.
