HTC maintains commitment to Windows Mobile

Andy Lees at HTC's news conference Despite having sold over 1 million Android devices, HTC has maintained its its Windows Mobile roots, which after all is responsible for sales in the 10 million’s last year.

At its MWC press conference today it did not announce any new Android devices at all, and in fact explicitly said they were “very focused on the Windows Mobile.”  So committed was Peter Chou, HTC’s president, to Windows Mobile that he spilled the beans on the upgrade, saying “”Later today, together with Microsoft, we’re introducing together with Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5.”

HTC introduced 2 amazing new devices today, and also promised the two smartphones will be Windows Mobile 6.5 ready, and will be getting free upgrades.

“These devices will also work with the future of Windows … Both of these devices are Windows Mobile 6.5 ready. Buyers will get free upgrades to 6.5”

While HTC is certain to release a number of Android devices over the next few months (we have all seen the roadmaps) its nice to know the Windows Mobile side will still get good support, and with the fantastic hardware announced today sales should remain very strong indeed.
