In December last year, Chinese electronics company Lenovo revealed its plan to launch its own Windows Phone handset this year. But it seems that Lenovo is not just interested in developing stock Windows Phone. According to WPDang, the company does not want to just sell stock Windows Phone devices, but it wants to customize it. The publication added that a few Lenovo research and development executives reportedly went to Microsoft’s headquarters to discuss the possibility of customizing the UI of the Windows Phone OS.
Microsoft, on the other hand, is reportedly open about customizations on its Windows Phone OS, which could mean that Lenovo has a chance. So far, only Nokia has the permission to make tweaks on Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS. So the fate of Lenovo’s Windows Phone dream still hangs in the hands of the Redmond-based tech giant. But we’ve already seen a leaked prototype of a Windows Phone from Lenovo last year. Meanwhile, in June, China Tech News reported that Lenovo is already poised to launch its line of Windows Phone 8 devices in autumn this year.
