HTC 10 reportedly won't have a version running Windows 10 Mobile

Vlad, 04 March, 2016

It looks like you're not likely to see a Windows logo on an HTC smartphone ever again. Or not anytime soon, anyway. Back in 2014, the One (M8) for Windows was basically the Windows Phone running version of the Android One (M8). Hence, some people may have hoped for HTC to pull the same stunt with this year's upcoming flagship device, which will be called 10. The hopes were there despite the fact that 2015's One M9 did not get a Windows variant.

According to Evan Blass (of @evleaks fame), neither will the HTC 10. He firmly stated today that there won't be an iteration of the HTC 10 running Windows 10 Mobile.

So it turns out that HTC has chosen to stick with Android alone for its smartphones, at least for the foreseeable future. On the other hand, if you're looking for a high-end Windows-powered handset, HP has surprisingly announced one at MWC - and obviously there's also Microsoft's very own Lumia 950 and 950 XL duo.

Had your G1, G2 then ran away from android to an 8X and then One (M8) Windows. I'll be waiting on the Surface Phone next.

HTC decided to focus on Android, yes! what has Android helped them other than losing market share? What people do not realise is that without Samsung Android will not go anywhere. Wait when Samsung matures their home brewed software and you will see ...

It doesn't matter whether HTC will not invest in Windows 10. They are not making from Android anyway!
