The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Microsoft is allegedly testing out their own self-branded Windows Phone 8 smartphone, as sources told the publicatoin that Asian component supplies are testing out prototypes.
The sources told WSJ that the display being tested out is between four and five inches, but Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s CEO declined to comment on that specifically to the newspaper.
“We’re quite happy this holiday [season] going to market hard with Nokia, Samsung and HTC,” Ballmer told the Journal. “Whether we had a plan to do something different or we didn’t have a plan I wouldn’t comment in any dimension,” he concluded.
Last week, Microsoft officially launched Windows Phone 8, which has smartphone support by HTC, Nokia and Samsung.
