MWC: HTC to put Windows Phone 7 on its handsets     'later this year'

HTC has announced plans to bring Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 Series to its handsets later this year.


The new software brings web content and applications together and is the first time Microsoft will bring together the Xbox LIVE games and the Zune music and video experience to the mobile.


HTC CEO, Peter Chou, said: 'Windows Phone 7 Series is a significant milestone for Microsoft, the industry and ultimately people looking to do more on their phones. HTC is working closely with Microsoft to bring the unique HTC experience that customers love.

'Microsoft has clearly listened to feedback from people and brought a new, fresh approach to the smartphone experience that is beautiful, powerful and compelling.'

Andy Lees, senior vice president of mobile communication business at Microsoft, added: 'People are moving faster than ever, juggling more priorities and turning to technology to manage it all. Windows Phone 7 Series simplifies common tasks by bringing together related content from the web, applications and services into a single view to make life easier.'

'We are pleased to work closely with HTC, a global leader in mobile phone technology and design, to bring new Windows phones to customers around the world.'
