Microsoft announced 9 more windows phone partners at MWC 2014 and today at a press event in New Delhi, the company announced its partnership with Xolo, Lenovo, Hp and Acer in India.


Windows platform had the fastest growth rate last year and the Microsoft is all set to further penetrate in emerging markets by partnering with local players. Interestingly Karbonn and Micromax were not a part of this list,while numerous reports suggest that both of them are working on a Windows phone. Karbonn is expected to launch a dual boot Windows phone in June this year.

Nokia devices have the biggest share in Windows Phone market. The low cost Lumia 520 and 525 have provided with quite durable and smooth smartphone experience, leading to vast success. If we can get low end devices with windows phone operating system and similar lag free performance every one will be a winner.
