Microsoft announces new Windows Phone partners, including Lenovo and LG
News from ZDNet:

Summary: Microsoft is poised to become a Windows Phone manufacturer in its own right, but is still managing to add new partners to its roster.

In spite of becoming a Windows Phone maker in its own right via its purchase of Nokia’s handset business, Microsoft is still managing to add new Windows Phone partners to its roster.

New to the Windows Phone OEM list are Foxconn, Gionee, JSR, Karbonn, Lava (Xolo), Lenovo, LG, Longcheer and ZTE, according to Microsoft officials.

At 4.7 inches, there’s nothing really “Mini” about this device, but you’ll definitely notice the lower resolution on the LCD (960×540). The hardware inside is also less than inspiring, with just 1GB of RAM serving the 1.4Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 400. Around back you’ll find an 8 megapixel camera hanging out above LG’s now-standard rear power and volume controls. Storage is 8GB plus an open MicroSD card slot, and the removable battery is a respectable 2440mAh. The display phones were running Android 4.4.2.
