The Indian company Micromax has introduced its first two Windows Phone terminals, both with an extremely affordable price. This could be a great first step for the explosion of devices with Windows Phone on the market.
Among the novelties presented by Windows Phone 8.1, one of them said, not their immediate functionality, but the consequences of market that could potentially have: the fact that Windows Phone 8.1 would be free for devices with less than 9 inch because it would lead to an increase in devices with the operating system Microsoft, and so it proved, as Micromax, for those who do not know, is a manufacturer of smartphones, tablets and LED televisions based company in India presented its first two terminals with Windows Phone.
The two devices of Micromax are the Canvas Win W092 and W121 with a respective price of €80 and €116. The W092, which goes directly to the low-end, will have a 4 inch screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, 5-megapixel rear and 0.3-megapixel front camera, a 1500 mAh battery and Dual SIM, high demand in India.
On the other hand the W121 will have 5-inch screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core, 8GB internal storage with microSD card slot, 8 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front camera.
Commercialization is expected from July in India, given that Micromax is based in India. Both the W092 and the W121 will seek to compete with other Android probably reduced price, the Moto E, which makes sense, since emerging markets are the next battleground for the manufacturer.
As we mentioned before, probably Micromax is the first manufacturer of many to join the movement of Windows Phone, thanks to the free license provided by the Redmond. Also, keep in mind that Windows Phone is much less fussy to consume resources, with clear example of the Lumia 520, so it is expected that these terminals perform better than their namesakes in Android. Google put the batteries to the Google I/O that Microsoft is ready to do battle.
