HTC, a global designer of smartphones and long time Microsoft partner, has unveiled five new Windows Phone 7 smartphones: HTC 7 Surround; HTC 7 Mozart; HTC 7 Trophy; HTC 7 Pro; and HTC HD7.
This strong and diverse family of phones features Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 7 platform and embodies the design and innovation for which HTC has come to be known. Each new phone includes a variety of cutting edge technologies and a series of unique HTC applications that can be accessed through the new HTC Hub that complements the Windows Phone 7 Hub and Tile experience.
“Windows Phone 7 is an entirely fresh mobile experience, on which HTC is excited to be going big. We see tremendous customer opportunities with the integration of Microsoft’s most popular services like Xbox LIVE and Zune,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation.
“The value Microsoft is bringing to mobile customers around the world sets a new benchmark for the industry. HTC will be introducing five new HTC Windows Phone 7 smartphones at launch to support our customers with a broad variety of choice.”
Andy Lees, president of the mobile communications business at Microsoft, commented: “HTC has been a partner with Microsoft since we launched our first phones nearly a decade ago, and we couldn’t be more excited to continue this journey with the launch of Windows Phone 7. Windows Phone 7 characterises a new direction for Microsoft and its partners, and HTC is stepping up to support this in a significant way by bringing five new Windows Phones to market.”
