Lenovo confirmed to be launching a Windows Phone in 2012 in China

This is some good news for Microsoft's growing platform. Lenovo, a well known brand for quality computer hardware, has confirmed what we suspected with earlier images of a Lenovo S2 Windows Phone being used. The manufacturer is jumping on-board and is set to launch a handset in the second half of 2012. According to product manager Chen Yue, he told iMobile in an interview that the company is looking for a second-half 2012 release, but failed to specify any details regarding price, specification or countries that will see the handset.

Of course, Nokia are looking to launch the Lumia 800 in China so it'll be interesting to see Lenovo rise to the challenge of taking on the Finnish manufacturer in the Asian market.
