This morning an uproar was caused when it was reported by WMPoweruser that HTC confirmed that they had no plans to deliver a high-end flagship device for Windows Phone this year. I admit my first reaction was a mixture of smug “I thought as much” and “truly a sad day”. Then my curious nature came to the surface. I started to follow the digital source trail until I landed at the original article. The original article paints a slightly different picture than the above referenced article produced by WMPoweruser.
The article is basically dealing specifically with the Android platform and the difference between last year’s One Series of phones launched (One X, One X+, One S, One V) and whether or not HTC might follow up with a “+” version for this year’s one. So there you have it folks. I know it seems like HTC has mailed it in when it comes to Windows Phone commitment but until we get to the fall and still not see any indications of a follow up to the HTC 8X I’d encourage you to step back from the ledge.
