It’s Official: Windows Phone 7 Coming To Nigeria This Summer
At the Microsoft Blogger’s Brunch held today at the software giant’s Lagos office in Ikoyi, it was announced that the Windows Phone 7 would be available in Nigeria this summer.
In case you don’t know, Windows Phone 7 is a mobile operating system developed by Microsoft. In February 2010, Microsoft introduced Windows Phone 7 to the world and got the tech world excited about its overhauled mobile operating system with its fresh user interface, added features, and promises of improved performance.
Today, Shina Oyetosho, a Microsoft Nigeria architect disclosed that the Windows Phone 7 will be available in Nigeria within the next two months. He also did a good job demoing the Windows Phone 7 to bloggers in Nigeria’s tech space and answered some questions about the operating system’s capabilities and functionality.
He also announced that Microsoft is working to build an ecosystem for Nigerian developers to get paid for their apps. According to him, “in terms of apps development, the Windows Phone 7 leaves the iPhone in the dust.”
[We hope to get a hands-on experience on the Windows Phone 7 and when we do, be assured of a review on TechLoy]
It’ll be interesting to see how the Windows Phone 7 would do in the highly competitive smartphone mobile operating system market, especially as Android is gaining more and more popularity every day.
