Microsoft today marked the official launch of a Chinese-customised version of Windows Phone with an event in Beijing showing of the user interface on the HTC Eternity (so far called the HTC Triumph, and better known as the HTC Titan).
The Chinese version of Windows Phone retains the Metro Design even with the inherent beauty of Chinese characters and supports both simplified and traditional Chinese languages.
The HTC Eternity (HTC Titan elsewhere) with a 4.7-inch screen, front- and rear-facing cameras along with popular Chinese apps is going on sale from today and should be followed by Nokia, ZTE and other OEMs soon. The Marketplace launches in China with 2000 apps.
At launch however the OS will lack deep integration with Chinese social networks â€“ this will however come in May 2012.
