As part of their new push for 2014, Microsoft is making it a lot easier for OEMs to use Windows Phone in their phones.

There will no longer be pre-approved OEMs, and any company can use Qualcomm’s reference design.

Microsoft also announced 8 new OEMs, including:

Karbonn, LG, Foxconn, Gionee, JSR, Lenovo, Longcheer, Xolo

Together with existing OEMs HTC, Samsung, Nokia, Huawei and ZTE the OEMs present 56% of all smartphone OEMs, which Microsoft of course hopes will translate into a significant increase in Windows Phone sales, which is currently dominated by Nokia.
