HTC – What is to come after the “first wave of attack” in the Windows Phone 8 market?
In an interview with WPDang, the president of HTC China, Ren Weiguang said that HTC is working on Windows Phone 8 models featuring a larger screen than the 4 inch and 4.3 inch displays on the new HTC 8S and HTC 8X respectively. He also added that it has always been HTC’s intention to develop for both Android and Windows Phone, and that this line is clearly seen in the past, the present and will continue in the future.
The executive gave high credit to the closed system of Windows Phone 8, saying it offers a more healthy, ecological development than the open source Android system. This has led to apps working more consistently across different manufacturer’s models unlike the Android experience which he characterized as having poor compatibility issues and app development. Besides, Microsoft is allowing HTC to differentiate its Windows Phone 8 models by design, screen size and color.
HTC’s president of China did say however that it might make some colors exclusive to specific carriers.
