A while back, Microsoft was looking at 2 Different Companies to Decide to Launch Windows Phone 8 Exclusively. The 2 Companies were Nokia and HTC. Nokia and Microsoft had Agreed upon a Deal that Microsoft was Not 100% sure that HTC could have been able to at the time be the Best for Microsoft to Launch Windows Phone 8. HTC at the time was 100% behind Android and didn't give too much towards Microsoft because Android is FREE and Microsoft Charges All of the OEM's to put Windows Phone on Any Phone. There are also other reasons why Microsoft didn't choose HTC either at the time. Microsoft was recently in Negotiations with Nokia to Purchase Nokia, but that didn't happen. Maybe since HTC had come out with the "ONE", Microsoft might consider re-thinking HTC. Microsoft was looking to Purchase Nokia, but Microsoft could see about talking with HTC to see if Purchasing HTC for their "Devices" Division to have HTC Build their WINDOWS PHONES. Since HTC is going to make a Variant of the "ONE" for Windows Phone, Microsoft can look at how the Sales of that go to see if Microsoft Should Re-Think their Decision about HTC.

HTC also has planned for release, the HTC T6 PHABLET. HTC Should also put Windows Phone or WINDOWS 8 PRO on this. Then HTC Can also show Microsoft how the Sales of the HTC T6 can Benefit Microsoft if Microsoft Would Reconsider their Decision and Consider Purchasing HTC.

HTC has been a Windows Phone Manufacturer in the past and they Can be Again. There are Plenty of us Windows Phone fans out there that are Just Waiting Patiently for a Good Quality Built Windows Phone. HTC has built that for Android with the "ONE". Sprint is coming Very Close to a Deal with Softbank where they Will be getting an Influx of a LOT of Money to Upgrade their Network to the Global Standard TD-LTE unlike the other Cell Providers who are NOT going to be using the Global Standard for LTE. It Will be Easier for HTC and the other Manufacturers outside of the US that Make Cellphones that Sell All over the World to be Used in the US on Sprint. So HTC Can and Should get back to Supporting Windows Phone and make not Only a Variant of the "ONE" the Same Size, but Also make a "ONE Phablet" as well for Windows Phone. By the end of the year, Windows Phone 9 should also be ready and RTM. That is When HTC should release the 2 different Models of the "ONE" to Sprint. HTC ONE WP9 and HTC ONE Phablet WP9. How Many of you HTC Fans and Windows Fans would Buy either of these HTC Variants if HTC Would Make them?
