Microsoftâ€™s special relationship withÂ Nokia is expected by many alienate the major Windows Phone 7 OEMs.
HTC has once again re-iterated that they are far from scared off.
HTC EMEA president, Florian Seiche told GulfNews.com Nokia’s recent announcement to move to Windows Phone will have a significant impact on the industry.
“This does not mean that we will abandon the Windows platform. We are the first company to launch a range of Windows models last year and this year also we will be launching new models based on Windows 7 operating system.â€
Florian went on to claim HTC produced 80% of Windows Phone 7 handsets sold last year, a number that seems somewhat doubtful considering the popularity of Samsungâ€™s models.
â€œWe are progressing down a path as an industry when people will use a variety of wireless devices ideal for all their different needs.”
