Windows Phone Is Second Most Preferred Mobile OS In India

Microsoft company representative at the TechEd Conference held in Pune few days ago gave out this information that Windows Phone now owns the second position in the mobile operating system leader-board in India.

Microsoft claimed that Windows Phone shipments increased all of a sudden by 38% in Q4 2012 here and is still on the rise. This surge was expected after the aggressive marketing strategies by Microsoft and its smart phone partners especially Nokia. Nokia’s dominant sales and marketshare in the second most populus country in the world justifies its contribution to this rise. Android being the leader is still way ahead of what Windows Phone has achieved but Windows Phone still have managed to drag iOS behind. With few more Lumia phones lined up for shipments, we can makes sense out of these statements.

Google has a thing for producing a great device when it comes to bringing in the Nexus range of devices. The Nexus 4 is still out of stock at a lot of places and LG did a great job with it. If we did not know it was LG made, nobody would believe it was a LG product. When people are still waiting to get their Nexus 4, the rumours have emerged that Google has turned to LG for producing the next Nexus smartphone, the Nexus 5.

Google is reportedly working on a lot of prototypes for finding the right flagship smartphone and the one from LG has been codenamed the Meglodon which was a prehistoric shark. The Nexus 5 will hit the retail stores around October. What can be made out from the leaked picture is a device with straight sides and curves at the corners of the smartphone with the LED notification light being present at the bottom of the device.
