Smartphone business slowly moving from Android to Windows Phone ?

A report in the Chinese paper The 21st Century Business Herald today indicates that some handset manufactures are looking at moving their business away from Android and focusing on Windows Phone handsets instead. Some of these vendors worry about the risk of becoming embroiled in patent infringement due to adoption of Android, and are thus moving on to support  Microsoft Mango operating system.

The China-based vendors aren’t concerned with becoming targets of lawsuits themselves, but are more concerned that the cost of using Android will grow – requiring them to pay huge licensing fees which they cannot afford. Some companies had already started to move into Windows Phone 7 before the ruling, attempting to diversify their businesses rather than focus on just one operating system.
