Microsoft exec hints at new HTC Windows Phone at Computex

Microsoft is hinting strongly that HTC may finally be ready to launch a new Windows Phone product, after months of Internet rumors that such a device is in the works. Speaking to reporters after Microsoft's Computex 2014 keynote address earlier today, Nick Parker, the company's vice president of OEM partners, answered a question about manufactoring partners with this response:

I'd love to break some news here if I could. But instead I'll just say that Microsoft will continue to have a great relationship with HTC. New things are coming, so get excited.

The hints from Parker come after rumors from Evleaks that claim HTC is working on a new Windows Phone product to be called the HTC W8. He also stated it will be an exclusive for Verizon Wireless when it is released. In a follow up report, he claims that the device will have BoomSound and duo camera.

What do you think about Parker's statements at Computex today and if HTC is really making a new Windows Phone device, are you interested in buying it over Microsoft's Nokia Lumia products?
