German manufacturer Trekstor has made the decision to crowdfund its previously announced Windows Phone 5.0.

The device comes with low-end specs, a mid-range design and all held together powered by an aging processor which we’ve previously covered here.

Trekstor is aiming this device,  not at users who want to purchase a Windows phone for the first time, that’s unrealistic, but rather at users who already have a Windows phone, but don’t want to change ecosystems just to upgrade their handsets. This obviously won’t attract Lumia 950 XL or HP Elite x3 buyers, but for 550 users, 650 users, it’s a viable replacement.

“Continuum surely is a factor, but we also see this as a replacement device for users of other Windows Mobile phones and therefore there is a factor of convenience when switching phones. ” Trekstor’s Simon Wiedemann explained to tech blog AllAboutWindowsPhone, “Same reason why other users stick with their OS even faced with inferiority.”

Trekstor’s reasoning makes sense on some level. Microsoft managed to cultivate dedicated fans of their Windows on phones initiative, and with a lack of manufacturers, it’s not exactly a crowded market at the moment. Continuum is also still a “cool” feature, albeit one with limited practicality at the moment. On the other hand, Microsoft has all but killed off Windows phone, with development from third-party ISVs being limited to maintenance for the most part.

You can back the device from 209 Euros on Indiegogo at the moment if you’re interested.
