      Believe you me, there’s many of you. Affordable Windows 8 phones were really overdue, and necessary for emerging markets to mass adopt Windows phone. Well, Microsoft said it, the second best time to plant a tree is now, here it is. According to Microsoft, shipments haven’t come in, but it will retail at Safaricom.
