Here’s a juicy one to bite into this morning. According to the China Times, Microsoft has been developing its own branded Windows Phone for the last four months, going so far as to select a manufacturing partner for the handsets that are scheduled to be ready for the first half of 2013.
Of course, these rumors have been around since the Surface unveiling and Greg Sullivan attempted to squash them by saying, “We have a strong ecosystem of partners that we are very satisfied with.”
What do our readers think? If this turns out to be true, would this put you off of buying any of the flagship phones from Samsung, HTC, and Nokia in preparation for Microsoft’s handset?
