We’ve seen several OEMs jump on the Windows Phone bandwagon in the past few months, especially after Microsoft announced that manufacturers can use the operating system free for smartphones and tablets under nine inches. To be exact, the number of hardware partners have jumped to almost 50 since the announcement of the free Windows program. If those weren’t enough, you can add yet another OEM to the the list of manufacturers who will release a Windows Phone handset in the coming months, an Italian-based company called Miia.

Recently, Miia announced a new Windows Phone handset, IIMotion MWP-47, for the local market. The handset brings a very decent set of specifications on board, considering its pocket-friendly price tag. The handset features a 4.7-inch IPS display boasting a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. It measures 135.8X67.2X7.2mm, and comes with Windows Phone 8.1 as its operating system out of the box.

There’s 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, which supports up to 32GB of memory. As far as the photographic capabilities are concerned, the handset sports an 8MP camera with an LED flash, as well as a 2MP front-facing camera for selfies. Other features include 1,750 mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi 802.11 b/g/n. and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor.

The product page for the handset doesn’t list its price, but the folks at Plaffo mentioned it will carry a €209 (almost $265) price tag, which is affordable if you take into account the hardware it has to offer. There’s no word if it will hit other international markets, but we wouldn’t count on it too much. We’ll make sure you get to know about it if it launches in other markets.
