Microsoft has now added new a few entries to its list of OEM partners for Windows Phone 8.1 Mobile operating system. Aside from existing hardware partners such as HTC, Samsung and of course Nokia, the Redmond company is including a couple of Korean and Chinese brands into the mix.

The two newest members of the club is American manufacturer Blu and Chinese phone maker K-touch. The two brands will join other OEMs that are yet to produce a Windows Phone 8.1 device such as Foxconn, Gionee, Karbonn, Lenovo, ZTE and Xolo.

At present, the Windows Phone market has been dominated by Nokia with over 90% market share by the end of 2013. So the addition of more partners should give consumers more choices when shopping for a smartphone powered by Windows Phone.
