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.
