Peter Chou launches HTC HD2, insults iPhone and calls Microsoft HTC's Strongest Partner
Peter Chou, HTC's CEO, introduced the HTC HD2 in Taiwan. The mega-spectacular drool machine with it's massive 4.3 inch capacitive screen (more on the screen in a second) is expected to hit U.S. shores in the first quarter of 2010, carrying that powerful 1GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood. Meanwhile, the HTC Exec wanted to use the HD2 launch as a platform to quash talk of a riff between Microsoft and HTC. Chou, calling the Redmond based firm his strongest partner, said that both companies worked together on developing the first capacitive display on a Windows Mobile device which, of course, is the HD2. The CEO said that a lot of the work at Microsoft's Windows Mobile division is supporting OEM's like HTC and that a lot of the things the Taiwan based company has achieved would not have been possible without Microsoft's hard work. Mr. Chou shows a quick comparison between the new HTC flagship device and the iPhone. He says the HD2 provides a "super experience" with the largest display on a phone. As he says this, a slide of the HTC HD2 standing right next to the iPhone is displayed, leaving no doubt in anyone's mind what HTC's intentions were when designing the phone.
