    Hi all,

    For those naysayers out there....there maybe a shot at getting webOS onto HTC phones...HTC is so concerned about Google/Moto, they they have decided to release a Win Smartphone...makes me think they may be interesting in webOS....

    Especially since it now appears that webOS had so outgrown the design of the TouchPad.....

    Take care,

    HTC reportedly launching Windows Phone devices: Handy diversification

    Summary: HTC has Windows Phone 7 devices on the runway. These devices could be a good diversification tool as HTC largely rides with Android.

    HTC is reportedly going to launch devices with the latest Windows Phone operating system Mango Sept. 1. The move will be a nice hedge against becoming too dependent on Android.

    BGR is reporting that these Windows Phone devices will be headed to AT&T and T-Mobile. The news by itself isn’t all that surprising—HTC and Microsoft have been strong partners for years—but the launch is notable given the Google purchase of Motorola.

    Publicly, HTC has said it will support Android even though Google now owns Motorola, an obvious rival. Both Samsung and HTC have supported Google’s acquisition of Motorola. And why not? Google will own patents that can give HTC and Motorola some lawsuit protection. Meanwhile, it’s also possible that Google will exit manufacturing anyway.

    However, the long term picture for Googorola is uncertain. Will Google really keep Motorola sandboxed? Can Google really not offer better hardware and software innovation? Will a channel conflict ultimately become a problem?

    None of those questions will be answered any time soon. The solution for now: Diversify. Windows Phone will start getting a lot more looks from not only HTC but other smartphone makers too.

    Hi all,

    Here's a story that shows the happy face HTC is putting on the proposed merger of Google/Moto, since this fails to mention that HTC is launching a win 7 phone.

    Take care,

    HTC Pleased Over Google-Motorola Deal, Says it's

    Smartphone maker HTC has rejected the growing threats in the market about Google’s proposed acquisition of Motorola Mobility affecting other Android handset makers including HTC itself in a rather negative way.

    In a statement, Peter Chou- HTC’s acting chief executive officer reportedly thrashed all the negative perceptions surrounding the Google-Motorola deal by saying that $12.5 billion acquisition is indeed “good news”.

    Chou also emphasized on the point that HTC, as of now, holds no plans of launching its proprietary operating system, and hence it is very much inclined towards working in collaboration with both Google and Microsoft in order to "leverage partnerships", and at the same time differentiating its products through services and software.

    He also stated that Google’s acquisition of Motorola will, in fact, benefit the company in its ongoing patent conflict against Apple over some of the company’s tablet and Smartphone devices.

    "This acquisition is more to enhance Google's patent portfolio, to support us, to protect us, so this is good news," Chou reportedly said, Daily Finance reports.

    Meanwhile, another leading name in the ever expanding Smartphone market Samsung is believed to be focusing on strengthening its foothold over the mobile software market in the wake of the Motorola Google deal.

    You do know that HTC was a launch partner with Windows Phone don't you? They have quite a few WP devices out already.
