With the disappointing sales of windows 7 smartphones, Microsoft plans to release dual-core and LTE phones. Windows Phone President Andy Lees told AllThingsD that the dual-core phones are coming but wouldn’t offer specifics. He also said the current collection of single-core Windows phones holds up well compared with dual-core Android phones and said LTE phones were coming but did not mention when they would arrive.

He also added that “The first LTE phones were big and big of the battery, and I think it’s possible to do it in a way that is far more efficient, and that’s what we will be doing,” Lees said.[/box_dark]
Microsoft admitted it had experienced “lower than expected initial sales of Windows Phone 7” in a proxy statement, and are having high hopes about Mango, the update to Windows Phone 7.5 which company launched late last month.
