HTC and Microsoft haven’t really had the best relationship ever since HTC decided to help Google launch the first-ever Android smartphone back in 2008. Yes, we have seen HTC Windows Phones launch over the following years, but not at the same pace as we saw HTC supporting Windows Mobile since its ODM days. We’re not sure if that’s going to change any time soon, but we do hear that there is work in progress.
At the launch of the HTC One M9+ in New Delhi this morning, Chia-Lin Chang, the company’s President of Global Sales and Chief Financial Officer was approached about the company’s future with Windows 10, given the popularity that Windows Phone has in India. The response was that the company is working closely with Microsoft as the release of Windows 10 ramps up. Chang also confirmed that we should be able to learn more about it by the end of the second quarter or the beginning of the third quarter this year.
It’s hard to predict if this will just be an HTC One M9 for Windows, something that wouldn’t necessarily be negative news depending on who you ask, given the lukewarm reception of the HTC One M9. It’s also hard to predict if this will be a phone or a tablet, given HTC’s expansion to tablets with the Nexus 9. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
