Windows Phone version of super-slim NEO M1 may be on the way

NEO-M1-WP

Microsoft is hoping  by making Windows Phone free and making it easy for OEMs to develop devices with the OS we will be seeing a flood of previously Android handsets running Windows Phone.

Now we may be seeing such a handset in development, as Chinese Shenzhen smartphone company NEO posted renders of their NEO M1 handset running Windows Phone in their official forums, according to GizmoChina.com.

The NEO M1 has 5-inch HD screen, 1280*720 pixel display, 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM, 13-megapixel Sony camera and  super slim metal body and 2000mAh fixed battery.

The big fly in the ointment however is that the handset runs the 1.3GHz MTK MT6582 quad-core processor, for which Microsoft has not announced support yet.

Even if this device does not run Windows Phone in the end, with so many barriers being dropped to using Windows Phone on handsets I suspect we will be seeing many more such devices pop up.
