HTC “really happy building on Windows and Android”, promises gyroscopes and 3D screens

HTC promising gyroscopes and 3D screens Drew Bamford, HTC’s Director of User Experience, told mocoNews that the company’s main goal was to sell more phones, not get involved in setting up ecosystems.

“HTC is always looking for new opportunities, but we are really happy building on Windows and Android. We can focus on the end-user experience, rather than the plumbing. Google and Microsoft  do a lot to make it all work.”

Instead, Bamford said the company’s software and user-interface engineers are focused on creating a better core experience. That means integrating Twitter, Flickr, Facebook and Plurk (an Asian-centric social network) into the OS, and not building app and music stores.

Bamford also said hardware features like front-facing camera, gyroscope and 3D screens will be commonplace on phones soon, but that it was up to developers to take advantage of them.

“The next wave of hardware when matched up with developers will create some really cool things.”

HTC is expected to introduce at least 3 Windows Phone 7 devices at the end of the year, including the HTC Mondrian,HTC Mozart and HTC Gold.
