Maati.tv: Microsoft has never really had a strong presence at MWC. That is partly because up until a few years ago Microsoft wasn’t really a phone manufacturer. But now that Windows Phone 8 is real and growing, Microsoft cannot avoid a key event like MWC. We’ve heard a lot about Windows Phone 8.1 in the past few weeks. The SDK was leaked, showing loads of new upcoming features in an update that we will hear more about in April. But Microsoft had something to show during MWC as well. Windows Phone is getting new hardware partners.
