BLU Products recently announced support for Windows Phone, including at least two devices due in the coming months. It should therefore not be surprising that BLU and Microsoft plan to sell the devices direct through the Store, including possibly physical locations.
One of the phones, reportedly the Dash 5.0 features a 5-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 854, a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, dual-SIM support and comes in a variety of bright colors. Windows Phone Central has now learned that the second phone has a 4-inch display, which suggests that it is a BLU's Dash 4.0 design. The Dash 4.0 model features a 480 x 800 display, 4 GB of storage, a 5 MP rear camera, dual-core 1.3 GHz CPU and a 1500 mAh battery.

The placement of the Xbox music tile is aesthetically pleasing. Also this is an awesome deal. I just want an orange Nokia.
