Archos Confirms Intentions of Entering Windows Phone Market


Here's one more new entry into the growing world of the Windows Phone platform. According to reports, French tech heavyweight Archos, noted for manufacturing portable media players and portable data storage devices, has confirmed its plans of entering the Windows Phone race. However, the company has also stated that it will look to play the waiting game for the right moment before the company eventually enters the race.

While the Windows Phone platform still has quite a long way to go before it eventually attains the popularity that's currently enjoyed by the likes of Android and iOS, last 12 months have seen the platform gain some much needed momentum in terms of users.

And although a number of big name players (such as HTC and Samsung) are already contesting for the top spot in that race, it seems like Nokia enjoys most of the popularity in this respect with the company currently being the primary supplier of handsets running on the Windows Phone OS.

However, the race might be opened up wide in the coming days with Archos already confirming that the company has plans to enter the Windows Phone market.

And although it's just a premature confirmation since no one knows what the future holds, this one small word of planning might come as a big news for the Redmond-based establishment Microsoft since there are not many dealers opting to build a Windows Phone powered handset these days. And a new entry into that market is always welcome.
