Twitter and WhatsApp are just the start as new Windows Phone 8 apps loom

326

Gallery: HTC's booth at Mobile World Congress 2013

60

Here at Windows Phone Central we often get accused of focusing on one manufacturer in the Windows Phone world, and not giving the others equal time. The truth of the matter is that we go where the news is, and this week especially has been a week all about Nokia and their heavy presence at MWC.

Still, we want to bring as much of the MWC experience to you as we can so when we find something relevant you'll know about it. Whilst we wish there was a story to be told in this post, the truth is that HTC displayed their Windows Phone 8 offerings by way of exactly 4 devices (among easily 40 seperate HTC One devices).
