Windows GoFone is the first ever Windows 8.1 phone spotted in the cloud
By the look of things Windows Phone branding could have a major revamping as a smartphone having the Windows Phone 8.1 has surfaced in the cloud. Windows GoFone by British cellular company My Go is the first ever phone that has the overhauled Windows branding with the ‘Phone’ word nowhere to be seen in the logo. It’s just Windows GoFone as you can see from the screenshot of this 4.7 inch smartphone. The details of this Windows phone are up on the company’s website and they are impressive alright.
The phone is just 7.2 mm thin and weighs mere 130 grams making it a sleek phone to have at all times with you. The 1280 x 720 HD IPS Screen (312 PPI) having 16 million colors is protected by Asahi Dragontrail glass screen which is scratch resistant, crack-resistant and made from environmentally friendly material. The heart of this dual SIM phone is a Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (4 x 1GHz CPUs) MSM8212 Chipset, Qualcomm Adreno GPU graphics chip and 1GB DDR3 RAM.
The capacitive touchscreen facilitates 5 finger input at any given instance of time courtesy the multi-touch technology. There is a 2M Front Selfie camera and a rear 8MP digital camera for clicking your favorite moments. Although the 1800mAh Lithium-Polyper battery seems a bit too less for such a phone, but it remains to be seen how it performs in conjunction with the new operating system and hardware.
There is no word on the pricing or availability of this phone yet, but you can expect the details to be out soon. And yes, we are as excited as you are for the first ever Windows 8.1 phone with the new branding.
