Most people know BLU as a maker of above average midrange smartphones that run Android. Soon, we'll also know them as a maker of at least one smartphone that runs Windows Phone. Blu has posted a teaser image to its Facebook page with this tagline:
"Sneak peek... What's this I see, that's different from the others? #BLU #BringingYouMoreChoices"
The unnamed phone is clearly meant to run Windows. It has the standard back, start, and search buttons, and even includes a bright color back to go along with the trend of colorful Windows smartphones started by Nokia and followed by HTC. It's surprising to see Blu embrace Windows Phone because the Miami-based company typically uses Mediatek processors and all Windows Phone handsets use Qualcomm chipsets. However, Microsoft has made adjustments to the operating system so that it's less resource intensive and capable of running on lower-powered processors.
Details about the phone are otherwise unknown, but given Blu's history as a maker of phones with some high-end features but midrange specs in other areas to keep price low, we can assume that the Blu Windows Phone handset will follow a similar path.source: BLU, via: WMPowerUser
