HTC LTE devices confirmed for next year, should run Android and Windows Phone 7

Now that both MetroPCS and Verizon are offering LTE services in the US, phone manufacturers can really start thinking of making nice money from LTE handsets.

At the moment, there’s only one LTE phone available in the US – MetroPCS’ Samsung Craft – but next year there will be more, and HTC will launch some of them.

Peter Chou, HTC’s CEO, has confirmed to Mobile Business Briefing that the company’s first LTE devices would be launched in 2011 in the US.

Most likely, we’ll see both Android and Windows Phone 7 LTE handsets (or even tablets) from HTC, since Chou said that consumers will decide, as they “may want Windows or Android; or they may want big screen or small screen, they may want keyboard or tablet.”

We’ve previously heard that the HTC Merge may be Verizon’s first LTE smartphone – however, according to the latest info unveiled, this doesn’t seem to be true. More details as we have them.
