It seems all Windows Phone needed to give the OS a shot in the arm is pricing the handsets dirt cheap.
The second generation Windows Phones ZTE Tania and Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone 7.5 handsets are currently topping the charts at Amazon, outselling the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Note 2, which are of course a lot more expensive, but also the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Ace 2 and Blackberry Curve 9320, which are equivalently priced.
Maybe Microsoftâ€™ strategy of selling cheap Windows Phone 7.5 handsets along side more expensive Windows Phone 8 handsets has some life to it after all.
