Windows Phone already enjoys a strong following in Italy. The Miia iimotion MWP-47 smartphone is sure to please the local buyers there once it launches in the country.
And this is good news for Microsoft, as another regional OEM had stated its allegiance to the platform.
Interestingly, this one is not one of those budget handsets either — Redmond’s newest Windows Phone partners is creating a midrange device with a full 1GB of RAM, in a 7.2mm thin form factor, with estimated price of only €210, which translates to just $265.
In fact, the only thing that is not as impressive is the name of the handset.
Two color options are available, black and white. Classy.
As the image above shows, the smartphone runs the latest version of Microsoft’s mobile operating system, Windows Phone 8.1, without the Nokia exclusive apps and services that are available on Lumia devices. But that’s understandable.
In terms of hardware you get a fairly decent 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, which is paired with an Adreno 305 graphics unit and the aforementioned 1GB of RAM.
All this should provide perfectly fine processing prowess for most needs.
The device packs only 8GB of memory, though, which can be expanded by an additional 32GB via the included microSD card slot. An 8 megapixel rear facing camera handles imaging duties, alongside the secondary 2 megapixel front option.
Standard connectivity technologies are all in, to go with a 1750 mAh battery.
