More Original Equipment Manufacturers to produce Windows Phones


Announcements made at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain indicate Windows Phone will be manufacctured by 13 more OEMs.

The list follows:

Nokia,
Samsung,
HTC 
Huawei

Additional OEMs to manufacture mobile devices with Windows OS
Foxconn,
Gionee (New Delhi, India),
JSR,
Karbonn Mobiles,
Lava (Xolo),
Lenovo,
LG,
Longcheer (Shanghai) and
ZTE


This is going to be interesting. Manufacturing based in China and India would provide very healthy competition which is going to be tough. India's own Askash phones may also join (speculation) in this group which appears to be android based.

With so many new vendors and the vast population who are already very mobile, this market is going to grow and Microsoft will see better times for its Phone OS.
