In a rather disappointing press event, for Windows Phone user, HTC has confirmed, debunking all previous rumors, that they will not develop any new Windows Phone until Apollo launch. In an interview with Pocket-link they laid their rather disappointing future plans for Windows Phone platform. Without circumventing the situation they preferred to stick to Android handsets.
In a press event before MWC they revealed number of Android handsets, but no news on Windows Phone front. In a report, which we covered couple of days back, Nokia surpassed HTC to become the leading Windows Phone manufacturer. The situation is grim for HTC, since Samsung is becoming people’s favorite brand as far as Android device is concerned and on the other hand Nokia is predominantly dominating the WP handset market.
HTC’s chief producer, Kouji Kodera said that, “We haven’t decided on branding Windows Phone yet, but you will see an new range of Windows Phone from us when Microsoft release their new Apollo system”.
The only good news yielded from this brief interview, is an international availability of HTC Titan II, announced at CES. It would be venturing out of the US and to the countries that had an LTE network support.
The bubble surrounding new Windows Phone has burst, as Sony, Huawei and HTC OEMs have kept their allegiances with Android. Let’s hope that Nokia brings something newsworthy handsets for us. Meanwhile, you can visit our post to Watch MWC 2012 live online.
