That’s right, some people still haven’t gotten the memo that Windows phones are becoming more of collector’s items than daily drivers in the smartphone industry.
According to a statement given to Windows Latest blog, UK smartphone manufacturer Wileyfox, the company claims people are still clamoring for their brand of Windows phones; so much so that the company is putting its phones back on the market, despite earlier claims.
“I just wanted to reach out to let you know the Wileyfox Pro is actually now back in stock and being manufactured again due to popular demand,” Wileyfox’s lead PR manager Thomas Reed told us in a statement.
Not only is Wileyfox putting its phone back on the market but the company says it’s committed to it providing cumulative updates from Microsoft to its Windows phones at least until late 2019.
The Wileyfox Windows phone may not have been the feature-packed hardware beast that the HP Elite x3 was but its quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 5-inch display with 2-megapixel front and 8-megapixel rear shooters, seem to be enough for some audiences.
The price of the Wileyfox Windows phone may be another reason the device is sold out in stores. At roughly $106 USD, Wileyfox’s Windows phone packs just enough to be a daily driver for users coming from older smartphones or flip phones.Further reading: Microsoft, UK, Wileyfox Pro, Windows 10, Windows Phone
