HTC haven’t announced a Widows Phone device since the launch of Windows Phone 8; where they showed off the HTC 8X and 8S, since then nothing (carrier variants for sprint excluded). Now it seems they’re ready to jump back in the game as Nick Parker, head of OEM partnerships at Microsoft teased about some exciting new things coming from HTC:
“I’d love to break some news here if I could,” said Parker in response to a question about manufacturing partners. “But instead I’ll just say that Microsoft will continue to have a great relationship with HTC. New things are coming, so get excited.”
Many people speculated that Nokia’s close relationship to Microsoft; and the buyout of the devices division scared off some OEMs as they feared they wouldn’t be able to complete with the close relationships. Thankfully though that doesn’t seem to be an issue, and we’re set to see some exciting new WP devices soon.
