What we have here is apparently the Oppo Find 5 running Windows Phone 8. The problem, however, is that we’re not sure whether the image above is the real deal or just a mockup made by a fan of Microsoft’s mobile platform.
We’d like to think that Chinese Oppo is looking beyond Android to reach more users but at the same time – we’re kinda skeptical they’ll take this route. Don’t get me wrong – I would love to see the Find 5 with Windows Phone 8 hitting the market, offering more options to the users. On the other hand, only the major handset makers are working with Microsoft at this stage, and even they aren’t willing to launch many devices. As I’m writing this, Nokia is dominating the Windows Phone landscape with few other companies like Samsung and Huawei commanding negligible shares of the market. Will that change in the future is still unknown. I can hardly imagine how Oppo can compete with Nokia except perhaps slashing its margins drastically. What do you think and, even more important, would you like to see/buy the Windows Phone-powered Oppo Find 5?
