Blu Products is a mobile phone maker out in Miami, Florida. They focus on making devices aimed at emerging markets and have a great presence in Latin America, the Caribbean and in the United States. Head to their Facebook page and you’ll see they’ve just teased a new Windows Phone. It’s very, very shiny.
We don’t know much about Blu Products or their plans with Windows Phone. Though it’s not too hard for anyone to become a Windows Phone OEM now that Microsoft has relaxed the rules a bit. Even you can become an OEM by heading to oem.windowsphone.com.
The Windows Phone they’ve teased, image above, looks a little bit like an Android handset they already make called the Dash 5.0. Inside the Dash 5.0 you’ll find 5-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 854, a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, dual-SIM support and more. The specs won’t blow you away, but the device does retail for $129.99 on Amazon.
Could this upcoming Windows Phone handset give Microsoft a boost in the emerging smartphone market? Probably.
We’ll work on making contact with Blu Products to learn more about their plans for Windows Phone. In the meantime let us know what you think of the teased image!
Thanks for the tip Bernie!
