BLU have just released their biggest smartphone yet for just $149. It boasts of a 7" display to attract people to buy it, but its other specifications might want you to do the exact opposite.
With so many manufacturers joining Windows Phone lately, it's been a bit difficult to keep up with all the new additions. Our handy guide offers you an overview of Microsoft's device partners.
Blu has shown off its two new Windows Phones - the $89 Win JR and $179 Win HD - in official videos. Check out their specs and see them in action, to find out what they offer for their low price tags.
Blu is the latest brand to launch a Windows Phone, the Win JR, which is now on sale for just $89 off-contract, featuring a 4-inch display, front and rear cameras and quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200.
Microsoft revealed a number of handsets on the way from its Windows Phone partners today, including the oddly named Yezz Billy 4.7, which is just 7.2mm-thick, and some very colourful phones from Blu.
After announcing nine new manufacturers for Windows Phone in February, and another two OEMs at BUILD last month, Microsoft has added two more companies to its list of Windows Phone hardware partners.
