Earlier last month, Microsoft unveiled several new Windows Phone handsets at Computex 2014 in Taiwan. BLU Products, a device manufacturer based in Florida, was one of the hardware partners to unveil two Windows Phone devices that would be coming to market sometime in 2014.
According to Windows Phone Central, BLU Products and Microsoft plan on selling the two devices online through the Microsoft Store. This could mean that we might see these devices at physical retail locations sometime in the future.
Both the Dash 4.0 and Dash 5.0 borrow their names and some specifications from their Android counterparts, which are also manufactured by BLU Products. The Dash 4.0 will have a 4” display with a resolution of 800 x 480, a 1.3Ghz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5MP camera, 4GB of storage, and a 1500 mAH battery. The Dash 5.0 has a 5” display with a resolution of 854 x 480, a 1.3Ghz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and dual-SIM support.
Although both of these devices are nothing spectacular, they will be priced fairly competitively. The Dash 4.0 is rumored to be priced at $99 USD and the Dash 5.0 at $199 USD. We have reached out to BLU Products to get clarification on these upcoming devices and will update the article when we hear back.
