The Verge claim to have received details from a knowledgeable source on HTC's roadmap for Windows Phone 8. After yesterday's official look at Windows Phone 8 from Microsoft, we know that HTC will be a Windows Phone 8 launch partner, alongside Huawei, Nokia and Samsung, so its not a Surprise that they are readying some devices in time for the Windows Phone 8 launch this fall. According to their source, HTC is preparing 3 devices, the flagship "Zenith", the midrange "Accord" and the entry-level "Rio."
- 4-inch WVGA display
- 14.4Mbps HSPA
- 5-megapixel camera with 720p video recording
- 512MB of RAM
- Qualcomm MSM8227 Processor
- 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD 2 display
- 8-megapixel Camera with 1080p recording
- 42Mbps HSPA+
- NFC support
- 1GB of RAM
- Dual-core MSM8260A Processor
The big-brother "Zenith"
- 4.7-inch 720p Super LCD 2 display
- 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording
- 42Mbps HSPA+
- Unnamed quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon
All three devices are to ship this year, with Rio and Accord coming in October and Zenith launching sometime in Q4 (please ingest with a spoonful of sodium chloride). We are glad that HTC is bringing the big guns out and hope Windows Phone will start to form a big chunk of their smartphone market share. Remember, HTC were the only OEM to put their full weight behind Windows Phone when it initially came to market, and for that I hope they capture a healthy slice of the Window Phone cake. Who knows, I might be sporting another HTC device come Q4. What do you guys think?
