Micromax Canvas WIN: First ever Indian Windows phone

In the Samsung and iPhone dominated mobile phone market several Indian manufacturers like Xolo, Karbonn and Micromax has made their special position by targeting the lower market segment.

Of course Android is popular but to maintain the sustainability, mobile phone manufacturers must use other available OS like Tizen OS, or Firefox OS or Windows OS.
Firefox OS or Tizen OS may not be reliable at this moment but Windows OS has already made it's position in the market.

By keeping these things in mind, Micromax has forwarded such a step to keep itself ahead in this market in all dimensions by announcing it's first ever Windows phone.
