Archos CEO Loic Poirier

We have seen many new names associated with Windows phone recently, such as ZTE, Oppo, Lava, to name a few.

The biggest surprise today however, to me at least, is to hear that venerably mobile device player Archos is now also considering a Windows Phone handset.

Speaking exclusively to TrustedReview, Archos CEO Loic Poirier said he felt the Windows Phone market is now mature enough after a number of years of gradual growth.

“We will launch a Windows Phone handset when the time is right,” Poirier  said.

Poirier however made it clear we should not expect a massive commitment from the company, saying:

“Before anything else we are focussed on Google.”

Are our readers surprised by this news, and do we need Archos in the Windows Phone ecosystem? Let us know below.
