HTC CEO confirms Windows Phone 7 device for late 2010

HTC logoHTC CEO Peter Chou confirmed that HTC intend to release a Windows Phone 7 series device by the end of this year. This statement ends the speculations that HTC may drop the new OS until Microsoft permit custom UIs.

As you already know, Microsoft have very strict rules for what goes and what doesn't on their new Windows Phone 7 OS and for one, home-brewed user interfaces are forbidden. No manufacturer will have the right to customize the Windows Phone 7 in any way so Microsoft can deliver uniform user experience throughout various devices.

There is no need to worry though, since the HTC CEO Peter Chou confirmed during the CTIA conference that they are excited about making a Windows Phone 7 device and can see it hitting the shelves before the end of the year.

The device, which Mr. Chou is talking about, might turn to be HTC Obsession, which leaked two months ago.

Peter Chou also commented on the company's position about the Google Nexus One. Despite the modest sales figures (only 135 000 Google devices were sold in the first 74 days after its release), they consider the phone to be a success given the lack of appropriate marketing and retail network. Even more, the Google Nexus One "showed the world that HTC is the top Android brand".
