According to MS_nerd, Microsoft is paying a part of subsidyÂ to release HTC Windows Phone 8X on all three US carriers and AT&T is subsidizing Lumia 920 completely for Nokia. Usually carriers and device OEMs will be responsible forÂ subsidizing phoneÂ cost forÂ consumers, butÂ Microsoft as a platform provider is now involved in this act. MS_NerdÂ is also speculating that SurfaceÂ Phone is definitely on the cards andÂ it is just not ready yet.
Should Microsoft subsidizeÂ Windows Phone devices in other countries as well? What do you think?
