Microsoft unveiled two new Windows Phones Monday.

The Samsung Focus Flash will run Microsoft's Windows phone 7.5 and comes with a 1.5 Ghz processor, a 5 megapixel camera and storage of eight GB.  AT&T will sell the phone for $49.99 with a two-year contract.

 

Microsoft is targeting the phone at people who understand the benefits of smartphones but haven’t yet made the leap.

“We know that segment of the population is really primed,” Greg Sullivan, a senior Windows Phone product manager, told Geekwire.

Microsoft also unveiled the Samsung Focus S. The update to the Samsung Focus will sell for $199.
