Microsoft: No plans for own-brand Windows Phone 8 device

Posted on Tuesday, June 26 2012 @ 20:24:41 CEST by

The announcement of Microsoft's Surface tablet was followed by rumors that the software giant may also be working on its own Windows Phone 8 handset, but this rumor got officially denied by a Microsoft executive:
A Microsoft executive said the company has no plans to manufacture its own company-branded smartphones, denying reports to the contrary that emerged after Redmond last week roiled the PC hardware industry by unveiling its own tablet computer.

Asked in an interview if Microsoft planned to apply that strategy to the smartphone market, Greg Sullivan, senior marketing manager for Windows Phone, said, "No, we do not."

Microsoft has revealed that hardware makers building Windows Phone 8 devices include HTC, Nokia, Samsung, and Huawei. "We have a strong ecosystem of partners that we are very satisfied with," Sullivan said Friday.
