Since the announcement of Windows Phone 7 Series, we've seen an LG WP7S phone and heard rumblings of a Samsung phone in development running the new Microsoft OS. However, one of the more popular smartphone manufacturers, HTC, has remained fairly quiet on the WP7S front.
HTC is having success with Android phones and as well with the new T-Mobile HD2 but will we see a HTC WP7S phone? HTC's Chief Executive Peter Chou shed some light on that subject in a recent Forbe's Magazine interview.
Chou was upbeat when questioned about Windows Mobile 7 Series, describing himself as being "thrilled" with the many changes Microsoft has made. Chou expects HTC to release a WP7S phone by the end of the year.
HTC doesn't plan on abandoning Windows Mobile phones either. Chou commented, "Windows Mobile 6.5 and 7 will coexist", believing that corporate users will likely continue to use the latter.
It will be interesting to see what HTC will offer with either Microsoft system. We know that a mystery HTC "Windows Phone" recently passed through the FCC and the HD Mini is lurking in the shadows. Chou's comments are encouraging and may mean that either could be the first of several HTC Windows Phones to head our way this year.
