WPDang is at it a again, reporting that Lenovo is looking to join the Windows Phone 8 bandwagon, but is looking to get a bit more control than your average OEM.

They report Lenovo has sent a team of R&D executives to negotiate with Microsoft aiming to gain more freedom on the UI customization of the Windows Phone OS.

Microsoft has said they expect to be more pragmatic about customizations in Windows Phone 8, so they may have a chance.  We have already seen a prototype Lenovo Windows Phone some time ago and the company has confirmed a Windows Phone 8 handset is on the way.

Do our readers think Microsoft will give in to the OEMs this time? Let us know below.
