Microsoft to launch new smartphone

Microsoft is planning to launch its own mobile phones in the U.S. by the end of this year, the technology blog Gizmodo reported on Friday. The phones will be made available in July exclusively on Verizon and will be aimed at heavy users of social networks. The report came after Microsoft released a new mobile operating system that was widely praised by technology pundits. Microsoft had a lead in the smartphone arena before losing out to Apple’s iPhone and others running on Google’s Android operating system.
