Microsoft proud to see more than 22 new Windows Phones introduced this year
posted by Florin T. / Sep 11, 2014, 10:53 PM
In addition to the new Windows Phone devices from well-known companies, we now also have handsets from manufacturers like Archos, BLU, Kazam, New Generation Mobile (NGM), and Yezz. We already told you about most of them, but we didn’t get the chance to talk about NGM’s first Windows Phone device, called NGM Harley-Davidson.
Microsoft says that the NGM Harley-Davidson is made for the Italian market, where it will be released in early October. As its name suggests, the smartphone is developed in collaboration with famous American motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson. It’s a limited-edition device that features the Harley-Davidson logo on the back, Windows Phone 8.1, a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, dual SIM capabilities, Snapdragon 400 processor, 8 MP rear camera, and 8 GB of expandable storage space. Prices for the NGM Harley-Davidson will start at €249. You can check out the handset in the slideshow below, alongside several other less-known Windows Phone devices.
Going forward, it’s said that Microsoft may ditch the “Phone” from Windows Phone, in addition to scrapping the Nokia brand from its Lumia handsets. But we’ll see about that.

What is great? Is it great when OEMs like Micromax, Karbon, Prestigio etc. have 0.002% share from WP which has 2-3% market share?http://www.phonearena.com/news
/25-of-Windows-Phone-devices-run-WP-8.1-Microsoft-undisputed-monopolist-in-terms-of-hardware_id59969 How many devices have they sold? 5 000? Less? Is it great when all these manufacturers and branders make only low end phones? Is it great when Huawei CEO told that WP is money down the drain? Is it great when the most important mobile manufacturers like Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo, ZTE, Apple, TCL, etc. do not have interest in WP? Is it great when you post here your brainless post?

Exactly. Until Nokia was around, the other manufacturers where not even trying to enter the market. It remains to be seen, though, how many users will buy phones from these unkonwn (let's say niche) brands.

Funny enough because the vast vast majority of consumers have no clue it runs android, and if they do, they could care less. All they care about is if their app works or not. Considering Samsung is the face of Android, if they were too suddenly leave and start treating android like wp devices they make, there will be a major power vaccum left. Sorry to say it, most people do not even know what android looks like (stock that is).

I hope there is a competition, i personally like Android but no problem if Windows do well and give a nice competition and may surpass if MS do some hard work.

Except all the MAJOR OEMs are quitting them. These are mostly minor local OEMs. Also despite this, WP's arket share has been on a decline lately.

Market share and sales are diferent things, according to ComScore WP sells 300,000 WP in USA per month that's a low market share if we compare with millions per month from competitors but also means growing. only Huawei has quit but not Smasung and HTC. The strategy from MS is to install WP software for free to all OEMs running on same hardware that runs androids.
