Mango on the rise says HTC North Asia

imageHTC’s North Asia president has told reporters that the smartphone world has become more diversified, leaving an opening for Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.

With the OS now supporting the Chinese language and offering significantly increased support for local content, he expected shipments of Mango phones to increase in that region in the 4th quarter.

He also said HTC and Microsoft have maintained a good partnership and will continue to work on expanding Mango market penetration.

The launch of Mango in China was also accompanied by the launch of Marketplace in the region, which will be supporting applications contributed by local developers.  Handsets are expected to follow soon.
