Microsoft has, now, officially released its first Windows Phone devices in India and the first three to arrive will all run on the company’s new Windows Phone 7.5 ‘Mango‘ OS. The three devices in question are HTC Radar, Samsung Omnia W and Acer Allegro, and the company believes the trio is good enough to eat into Android’s growing market share in the sub-continent, especially in India, and make Windows Phone devices the number one choice for consumers in this part of the world.
Among the three, the HTC Radar will be the first one to be available from as early as next week for a rumored price of around Rs. 23,000 (Approx. $490), while the Samsung Omnia W and Acer Allegro are all set to arrive sometime in November.
Some rumors also suggest that the Acer Allegro will be the cheapest of the lot and will retail for something around Rs. 18,000 (Approx. $400).
Microsoft has also launched Windows Phone Marketplace and voice recognition support in India officially in order to win over some hearts.
