There must be a special bond between HTC and Microsoft that many companies might not have. They feed on each other in order to sustain their current business; with HTC providing some much needed love to an aging platform. During MWC, it was announced that the Taiwanese company is responsible for 80 percent of Windows Mobile phone
sales. Those figures seem pretty accurate when you think about how HTC manages to keep the Windows Mobile platform fresh with home screens that show off graphical prowess on each device released. HTC’s CEO Peter Chou reminisced how his company has sold more than 40 million HTC Windows Mobile devices around the world. He went on to state, “Twelve years ago when we started our company, we met with Microsoft early on. It was clear that we shared the same vision of smart connectivity. I’m an old veteran of Windows Mobile. We try really hard to make all the visions happen, and we have sold more than 40 million HTC Windows mobile phones around the world.” After all is said and done, you might wonder what the other 49 OEM partners, including names like Palm, Motorola, and Samsung, are doing to just sell a combined total of 10 million phones. HTC’s products showcase how they are able to transform the Windows Mobile platform into an intuitive and candy eye filled interface. Not to mention the beauty of the design of their products are top notch as well.
