I'm generally a big fan of giving people a choice in operating systems. But I'm not so sure that this is a good idea on Huawei's part. It implies that there might be a significant number of users who would want to run Windows Phone, and who would base their purchase on that capability. But is this really true? Microsoft has offered Windows phones for a long time, but it has never caught on, and never come close to challenging even iOS nevermind Android (which has a gigantic amount of worldwide mobile market share). Windows Phone has consistently lagged behind in market share and Microsoft's billions haven't been able to save it.
