HTC President of North Asia Reaffirms Commitment to MicrosoftJune 11, 2011 No Comments
HTC has so far been the most committed OEM to Windows Phone 7. That is slated to change once Nokia officially enters the arena with their exclusive to Windows Phone 7 smartphones. Jack Tong, president, HTC North Asia in an interview with Dow Jones Newswire .”Microsoft is still committed to us, and we will continue to develop tech devices. Our partnership is strong.”
While HTCÂ may still be committed to Windows Phone 7, it seems like their commitment will be extremely lax. Tong goes on to say in the interview how HTC will increase the amount of HTC devices running Androind by 70%.
I understand that for the time being there is more money to be made on AndroidÂ Â and “it’s all about the benjamins baby” but really how much ofÂ a commitment to WP7 can you really have when you are trying to increase the amount of HTC phones running Android by 70%.
Don’t get me wrong I don’t think HTC has done a terrible job with Windows Phone 7, but I do think that some of the devices could be improved upon, but it seems to me that theirÂ primary focus will be Android leaving Windows Phone 7 on the sidelines.Tags: Android, HTC, jack tong, Nokia, windows phone 7, WP7HTC 7 Pro, HTC Arrive, HTC HD7, HTC HD7s, HTC Mozart, HTC Surround, HTC Trophy, News
