We reported a few days ago that Microsoft India was set to officially launch Windows Phone there and sure enough, that day has come.
Over at the site I Love Windows Phone, Abhishek Baxi live blogged the event where all the details were revealed. The first device to launch there will be the HTC Radar, which will fetch for Rs 23,990, followed by the Samsung Omnia W (Rs 19,900) and Acer Allegro in November, all with Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango" on board.. Not bad for a launch selection at all, but no word on Nokia at this time.
In addition, two localized apps were shown off: Times of India and SnapDeal, which should make some folks happy to have those on board.
