    Windows mobile OS is here to stay

    While Android and iOS are known for their major market share in smartphone industry, Windows mobile OS still has a huge fan following who would love to see and buy a new Windows handset. HP and Microsoft will aim to target such audience and the affordable price tag can come as a neat trick to lure first time Windows buyers as well.

    It's too early to talk about the figures, but an affordable feature loaded Windows phone can fill the gap after Microsoft declared that it is killing the Lumia range of handsets in September 2016.
