The release of Windows 10 Mobile is approaching (although we don’t know the exact date), and it looks like a lot of companies recognized an opportunity for the new market. After the alleged HP’s Windows 10 Mobile device, people around the internet are assuming that HTC prepares its new Windows 10 Mobile handset, as well.
Microsoft and HTC are working on a new Windows 10 Mobile device?
Namely, Microsoft just posted a job listing on Microsoft Careers where it seeks for a Director of Account Management. The job is located in Taipei, Taiwan – the location of HTC headquarters. This could mean that Microsoft wants to cooperate with HTC on bringing a brand new Windows 10 Mobile device. The company evidently wants to work with OEMs to boost the production of devices powered by the company’s upcoming mobile operating system, Windows 10 Mobile.
The job listing says:
“This person will lead all aspects of sales and business development interaction with HTC, one of our top 3rd party phone device partner accounts. Being the HTC AM will have a heavy emphasis on coordinated strategy development with OSG, Marketing, and OEM. Impact must be driven through senior executive levels up to and including CEO level with the goal to build product portfolio that highlight focused user scenarios around our Windows 10 Mobile and Microsoft services combined with HTC’s devices, applications, and services”
But, even though major manufacturers are starting to take interest in Windows 10 Mobile, devices powered by this operating system still don’t sell well. However, having some big names, like HP, Samsung, and now HTC to release Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices will certainly be beneficial for Microsoft and its latest mobile operating system.
The release of HTC’s Windows 10 Mobile device is just speculation, based on details from the job listing. But, as soon as we have more info, we’re going to update you on the situation.
