Big changes could be in store for Windows Phone. Hot on the heels of claims that Microsoft has waived Windows Phone license fees for some OEMs, a Huawei executive, in an interview, revealed plans to launch a Windows Phone-Android hybrid smartphone later this year.
"We are still committed to making Windows Phone devices," Shao Yang, Huawei's CMO, told TrustedReviews.com in an interview published on Wednesday. The executive countered, however, that Android devices are a higher priority, and that a "dual OS" strategy might be necessary.
"If it is Windows only, maybe people will not find it as easy a decision to buy the phone. If they have the Android and Windows together, you can change it as you wish and it is much easier for people to choose Windows Phone," he said, adding that Huawei will debut a dual OS device in the US in the second quarter.
