Wileyfox is planning to launch Windows Phone this year. The company is better known for their Android phones. With the Windows Phone, the company is now planning to move into the enterprise arena.
Wileyfox vice-president of sales Andy Lee said,
“Increasingly people are screaming for costs to come down and want a good affordable device. If businesses are going to buy thousands of devices to kit out their workforce, they need a good price point. That’s where we’re going to hit it out.
Most firms can’t afford to spend £500 per device. But with us, they can be assured quality and the right features. For example, courier companies can use it to scan products and save money which is of course what they want. That is the benefit of Windows and how it’s adaptable for B2B. Windows is much better for security. That’s why it’s more suited for B2B. Android can be opened up.”
The company plans to release a Windows Phone in August this year via network partners in UK and then later several European territories. Wileyfox operates in 15 countries including France, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands.
