HTC confirms a new Windows Phones with ‘Apollo’ in the pipeline

HTC made no mention of Windows Phone during the company’s Mobile World Congress 2012 press conference on Sunday, instead focusing on its Android-powered “One” smartphones. HTC most certainly has not given up on the emerging platform, however —the vendor’s chief product officer Kouji Kodera has confirmed that the company plans to launch a new Windows Phone once Microsoft releases the “Apollo” operating system update, reports Pocket-Lint. “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,” said Kodera. HTC was previously a big player in the Windows Phone platform, however the company has has slowed things down recently while Nokia’s Lumia phones have gained ground.
