Now, Microsoft is planning to intensify the competition in smartphone segment. It’s really very tough to believe, but Microsoft is secretly working on its own smartphone project. Of course, the company will launch its smartphone in order to contend Samsung Galaxy SIII, iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC Windows phone 8X. BGR has recently reported that Microsoft’s smartphone is in the final stages of development and it could be launched in next few month. On the other side, the China Times has also revealed that Microsoft has been working on its smartphone projects for at least four months and the phone will debut in the market in the first half of 2013.

Indeed, Microsoft has adopted never-before-seen strategy, and this time, it’s quite bullish to create a strong mobile ecosystem. The company has tied-up with Nokia, HTC and Samsung  for the prevalence of Windows Phone 8. The OS has somehow succeeded to grab the attention of a significant people around the world and if Microsoft will launch its own smartphone next year, then definitely,  it will get an opportunity to clinch considerable market share of its rivals.

For Microsoft, the success of its smartphone is dependent on the business of its Surface Tablet. If Surface Tablet is succeeded to create a halo effect around, then of course, it will be an additional support for its smartphone shipments. Anyway, the success of Microsoft’s smartphone is indirectly dependent on Windows 8 success.
