Microsoft announced its Windows Phone 7 Series yesterday at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Today, HTC confirmed that it will offer a full portfolio of smartphones running the new OS in the coming months. Peter Chou, chief executive officer of HTC said in a statement:
Windows Phone 7 Series is a significant milestone for Microsoft, the industry and ultimately people looking to do more on their phones. HTC is working closely with Microsoft to bring the unique HTC experience that customers love. Microsoft has clearly listened to feedback from people and brought a new, fresh approach to the smartphone experience that is beautiful, powerful, and compelling.
While the hard stuff may still be yet to come for the OS, as expressed by Rob Enderle of IT Business Edge, HTC's intention to continue its relationship with the mobile platform is surely a step in the right direction.
