Mobile phone manufacturer, Prestigio has announced that their first Windows Phone device, the MultiPhone 8500 DUO, will officially go on sale this Sunday, July 20. It will fetch a quite reasonable $210.00.
The long-winded, yet aptly-named MultiPhone 8500DUO, is a dual-SIM phone, running Windows Phone 8.1. It has a 5-inch IPS HD display (1280x720) that is protected with Gorilla Glass 2. Under the hood lies a Qualcomm MSM8212 1.2GHz Quad Core CPU and 1GB RAM. The rear camera weighs in at 8 mega-pixels and is accompanied by a 2 mega-pixel front shooter.
Prestigio's first Windows Phone device may not blow anyone away with its specs, but it appears to be a solid mid-range device with a thin, sleek design and a wallet-friendly price. If nothing else, it is a positive sign that other manufacturers are signing on to produce Windows-powered phones.
