At least that’s what Sudeep Bharati from Microsoft India told The Economic Times.
Reportedly, the cheap Windows Phone 7 device will be released in 2011 (hence after the first batch of WP7 devices is launched), having a “smaller screen” and “a different chassis than version 1”.
Sudeep Bharati also mentioned that Microsoft is “in talks with OEMs to gain their feedback on a new chassis” that should allow the company to put Windows Phone 7 on the promised low-cost device.
Until the cheap WP7 phone gets to be released in India, though, you can check out the Windows Mobile 6.5.3-based Garmin-Asus M10, which is already available in the country.
