Once Nokia launched its Windows Phone smartphones, it became the main player in the market showing 33.1 percent of market share. In some regards, this was possible due to HTC, which had allowed Nokia to take the top spot in the platform away from it. Now that Microsoft’s operating system is a real competitor thanks to its improved features HTC has announced about its plans on this platform.
Having introduced the One series handsets yesterday at MWC 2012 in Barcelona HTC’s chief product officer Kouji Kodera confirmed that once Windows Phone Apollo is available, they will bring new handsets to the market with WP on board. He particularly said, “For Windows Phone we haven’t decided on the branding yet, but you will see a new range of Windows Phones from us when Microsoft release their new Apollo operating system.”
Moreover, this OS may come to one or more devices from One lineup, thus this smartphone/tablet family will run non-Android platforms too. Well, HTC’s first Apollo-based smartphone will see light in Q4 and will sport multi-core chipsets and HD screens.
As for the successor of the Titan, HTC said its LTE version will be launched outside the US. The first country the Titan II LTE will be available in is Australia, which can be promoted as the Windows Phone Wonder from Down Under.
