"We are excited to expand our product portfolio to include Windows Phone and introduce our customers to Cortana," said Samuel Ohev-Zion, CEO of BLU Products.

Windows Phone 8.1

A Windows Phone offers a more personal smartphone experience that brings you closer to the people and things you really care about. The BLU Win JR and Win HD introduce you to Cortana, a truly personal digital assistant who gets to know you, anticipates your needs, and respects your privacy. Cortana is the only smartphone assistant who can set reminders by people, as well as time or location, so that you remember to ask your best friend how their vacation went the next time they call or text. As a Windows Phone 8.1 device, the Win JR and Win HD include features such as Live Tiles that surface information important to you; Action Center, which show new activities and notifications at a glance; and Senses, a suite of features that takes the work out of managing data use, storage space and battery life.
