Yesterday in New York, the tech world was lucky enough to see the official launch of “Windows Phone 7”. Along with this, Microsoft’s CEO “Steve Ballmer” announced what devices and carriers would be running the new OS. One of the handset manufacturers to take on board Windows Phone 7 will be HTC. So what do we know about them?
The Taiwan based company “HTC,” has a good reputation for building high quality external QWERTY handsets for Windows Mobile software. Back in 2009, the company steered away from Microsoft and placed their attention on the Android OS. But from yesterday’s news, they seem to have gone full circle. Thomas Ricker at Engadget reported that, from the devices that were announced, seven of them will be HTC. CEO “Peter Chou” for HTC said, “Right now we have Windows Phone 7 and Android, and focus the same on each, but let the market decide.” Along with this, Chou has spoken about more Windows Phone 7 devices expected next year.
If the CEO’s statement and further news is anything to go by, there is no doubt that HTC are showing their commitment to Redmond.
