HTC was the third OEM to unveil its Windows Phone line-up after Samsung (who kind of silently pushed the ATIV S in the spotlight at IFA) and Nokia with its joint Microsoft-Nokia event where they unveiled the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 820 devices. Steve Ballmer was there in New York for the HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S unveiling.
HTC CEO Peter Chou didn’t miss any opportunity to emphasize on the “iconic” design of the the phones in the company’s Windows Phone line-up. In a recent BBC interview he reiterated the fact that these devices will be treated by Microsoft and HTC as “hero” devices (and we already saw Nokia being a tad jealous); furthermore, Peter Chou is “super confident” of these Windows Phones and strongly believes in their success. To check out the short, two-minute interview, follow the source link below.
As far as Android is concerned, fans of the platform and the HTC brand don’t need to worry. HTC’s commitment to Google’s platform is the same, and so is to Microsoft’s operating system. Nothing has changed, the CEO said.
