More OEMs coming this year,Sony, Micromax, ZTE, Huawei, Getting into the act too.
Problem with the other OEMs is that they are more focused on Android than Windows Phone,as its obvious Android has more market share they tend to spend more time on that platform.
so WHY this year suddenly all OEMs jumping on Windows phone?
Answer is Windows Phones Market share has increased and is already pulling down iOs in some markets.
If OEMs sell both android and windows phones together they have a better chance of making good sales and profits.
Nokia has dedicated the platform to Windows Only. They have no other choice but to flood the market with Windows Phones and capture their lost ground.
With WP8 getting GDR3 now their are most of the essential things needed on WP8.
With 8.1 WP shud have everything what other Platforms have,maybe more than that.
Also with 8.1 rolling out this year we will have the GDR's rolling too at quarterly with new updates.
