One of the advantages that Android has is that it has many, many OEM partners. In fact due to its open-source status, there are manufacturers who create Android devices and not necessarily with Google’s blessing either (missing Google services and Play Store), but the fact remains that Google’s reach is helped by its many manufacturing partners who create a range of devices for customers. Well it looks like Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform will be getting a new partner in the form of French OEM company, UCall, who will be announcing their new Windows Phone smartphone at MWC 2014.
In fact this Windows Phone handset will be UCall’s first Windows Phone device as the company has in the past only released Android phones. UCall’s Windows Phone efforts will be that of a low-cost device that will supposedly cost less than €100, so it will definitely be interesting to see what kind of specs it will pack, and how well it will be received. After all devices like the Nokia Lumia 520 have gone on to do very well for itself for being a budget handset, so perhaps UCall’s product will be able to achieve the same amount of success as well. No word on whether it will see a release outside of France, but check back with us during MWC 2014 for the details.
