There are four rumored device manufacturers for Microsoft who will support Windows Phone 8. The sure bets are Nokia, HTC, Samsung and Huawei. Making it official in an announcement today is HTC. No indication of device names or hardware are mentioned, but we can hope for a dual core hot rod from HTC with the now Supported Windows Phone 8. Check out what HTC has to say and hold tight for more information from the makers of the current Windows Phone Titan and Titan II:
“HTC is committed to Windows Phone more than ever and we are excited to be bringing new Windows Phone 8-enabled smartphones to customers later this year,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. “With the introduction of Windows Phone in 2010, Microsoft initiated a new powerful mobile ecosystem with a consumer experience that was both unique and user friendly.”
“We have seen great momentum for Windows Phone since its launch in 2010, with 100,000 apps now in the Marketplace,” said Terry Myerson, Corporate Vice President of Windows Phone at Microsoft. “HTC is one of our closest partners and we share a common goal in driving people-centric innovation, which makes it easy to work together. We can’t wait to see how HTC brings Windows Phone 8 to its product portfolio.”
