China Unicom to launch Windows Phone devices.

China Unicom has just signed an agreement with Microsoft for the distribution of  Windows  smartphones, not  specific launch dates have been provided  yet.

The agreement is said to be part of a larger alliance aimed at boosting sales of Windows-based mobile phones in the country and which also involves seven mobile phone makers, including Nokia, HTC Corporation and Samsung, as well as chip makers such as Qualcomm.

This week, the first Windows Phone 8 handsets were launched in the country, coming from HTC and Nokia, namely the Windows Phone 8X and 8S and Lumia 920. 

Both of the new Windows Phone 8 devices coming from HTC arrive on shelves with support for China Unicom’s 3G network, it seems. 

“As more mobile phone vendors start selling Windows Phone devices, it demonstrated that Nokia made a very bright choice at the very beginning,” said Gustavo Eichelmann, Nokia China chief reportedly said. 

China Unicom has over 70 million subscribers at the moment, and will focus on promoting devices powered by Microsoft’s Windows platform.
