The world’s largest mobile operator will offer Windows Phone 8 devices in 2013

Microsoft has set its sights on improving Windows Phone’s dismal market share conditions, and the user base might grow if the largest mobile operator in the world begins to offer their phones. According to WPDang, that’s set to happen in 2013 with China Mobile. The carrier will join China Telecom and China Unicom to complete the Republic’s trifecta of operators.

If we’re reading the rough translation correctly, two devices will be headed to the carrier using their TD-SCDMA technology next year. WPDang has a hunch that the operator will link up with Huawei, since China Telecom already has a deal with Nokia while China Unicom has a deal with ZTE. Of course, we won’t know for sure until next year.

One thing is for sure, though: if Microsoft wants even a third of China Mobile’s 655 million subscribers that Windows Phone 8 device better be the best piece of tech they can offer!
