Microsoft says it is ready with 4G devices

Tags: News
Software and mobile handset major Microsoft is ready with 4G band devices, said a senior executive today.

"As soon as the operators decide about the 4G, we can offer them the technology," said Raghuvesh Sarup, sales director at Nokia India, a subsidiary of Microsoft Mobiles.

Speaking after the launch of the Lumia 630 dual SIM smartphone handset, the first device with Windows 8.1 system in the country, he said, "We have been LTE-ready with devices starting 2012; we have the technology. As the India LTE landscape has been recently clarified, we are working closely with operators. We also support FDD band 3 (1800MHz) which was recently auctioned."

Currently telecom operators are busy trying to assess their own network capability for LTE, he said, adding "it's not yet known which major telecom player will choose what band. But, we are ready."

Talking about the Lumia 630, first dual SIM smartphone from the Microsoft stable, Sarup noted that over 80 per cent of the smartphones sold in the country are dual SIM ones.
