It was not too long ago that Microsoft shared with the world that they will be working with other new hardware partners when it comes to pushing out additional products or devices for its mobile operating system that is known as Windows Phone. In fact, Microsoft is not going to rely on their very own Nokia brand any more, and Prestigio, one of the companies who showcased at least a couple of Windows Phone-powered smartphones at Computex last month, intends to push forward the Multiphone 8500 DUO.
The Multiphone 8500 DUO will be accompanied by the Multiphone 8400 DUO, where both particular smartphones happen to be dual-SIM capable, as well as support 3G connectivity. In fact, the Multiphone 8400 DUO will be the less powerful among the two, arriving in the market only this coming 20th of August. They both run on a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, carry an 8MP shooter at the back. As for the Multiphone 8500 DUO, it edges out its sibling thanks to a 5” display, 1GB RAM, and 8GB of internal memory.
As to whether these two Multiphone models will be able to make a large impact, that remains to be seen. I suppose most folks would prefer to stick to the Nokia brand name where Windows Phone is concerned though.
