Microsoft’s initial attempts to get on the smartphone market didn’t turn out to be very successful (anyone remember the Kin series?), but this shouldn’t be a reason for the company not to give it another try. Well at least according to the market analyzers – a representative of Nomura has recently revealed, that there’s quite a good chance that Microsoft may be working with another company on releasing a smartphone of their own and while this news may have seemed quite unlikely two weeks ago, they actually sound logical now that the software giant already revealed their Surface tablets. Of course, this is still just a rumor, but in out opinion there is quite a big chance for Microsoft to follow the example set by another software giant and their major competitor – Google, and their Nexus series smartphones.
