Microsoft ask HTC to put Windows on HTC One and others amid record loss at HTC
HTC posted it’s first-ever loss since the company started, a $101.2 million loss from an available capital of $1.6 billion. The reports represent the Taiwanese company’s activity for the quarter 3 of the fiscal year of 2013. The loss was aided by shortage issues with the HTC One mini amid failed expectations by the flagship HTC One.
But good news is, Microsoft has been reported as offering it’s Windows Phone OS for HTC to put on it’s current Android flagships, for free. Windows will not collect licensing fee for it’s operating system and all HTC has to do is put the OS a variant HTC One, HTC One mini (and a few more others), and offer for sale.
This move will see customers who wanted to try Windows Phone 8 OS surely scrambling for a copy of these newly Windows-powered phones.
We haven’t heard any reply from the HTC camp but we will keep our ears to the ground and will inform you once we get wind of what’s happening inside the Taiwanese company.
