HTC prepares about 10 new handsets for 2009
While announcing impressive revenues for the fiscal year 2008 ($4.61 billion), HTC has also unveiled its plans to release around 10 new handsets during 2009.
All the new devices will be based on either Windows Mobile or Android. And while at the moment there’s no word on which platform will be used the most, it’s very unlikely to see more HTC Android phones than WM ones, given the strong relationship between the Taiwanese company and Microsoft.
HTC also said it wants to use Ericsson EMP chips for some of the new 3.5G devices, instead of chips manufactured by Qualcomm.
For now, all I can say is that I hope the next HTC Android smartphone looks better than the G1 and will be released via more carriers and not just one (T-Mobile, in this case).
