More hardware partners for Microsoft’s Windows Phone

Microsoft says it’s now working with nine new hardware partners on Windows Phone devices: Foxconn, Gionee, Lava/Xolo, Lenovo, LG, Longcheer, JSR, Karbonn and ZTE. These will join the four current partners, which are HTC, Huawei, Nokia and Samsung.

The company also says its Windows Phone platform will now support Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 and 400 processors, along with ‘soft keys’ and dual SIM, which means some vendors will be able to use the same hardware for Android and Windows Phone devices.

Nick Parker, corporate vice president of the OEM Division at Microsoft, said “We are pleased to add these new partners to our expanding Windows Phone ecosystem. They will be key contributors to continued growth across price points and geographies for Windows Phone.”

An update for Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS is planned for the spring, along with an update for the Windows 8.1 desktop, laptop and tablet operating system.
