After Micromax, another smartphone manufacturer from India confirms its interest toward Windows Phone. Xolo’s officials have revealed to The Economic Times that the company is working on a Windows Phone 8.1 device which is likely to hit the market by the end of Q2 in 2014. Alongside the first Windows Phone model, Xolo is preparing its first Windows-based tablet models.

According to the company, the future Windows Phone 8.1 model will have a similar to the current Android models price tag. That means the phone will cost between $150 and $300. Further details have not been disclosed.

It looks that there are many companies planning to release Windows –based models in 2014 and Microsoft’s OS may have a bright future. In December, a high-end Samsung device was spotted online. The 5-inch, quad-core smartphone codenamed Samsung SM-W750V is expected in Q1 / Q2 2014. In October, Micromax expressed its interest in developing Windows Phone devices and the first model from Micromax could arrive by mid-2014, revealed the co-founder. In November, ZTE said it’s completely dedicated to Windows Phone and we will see new models sometime next year. Development of new, budget-oriented Windows Phones could be a good strategy considering the success of the low-end Lumia 520. Currently, Nokia Lumia 520 is the top selling Windows device in the world.
