Ouch, Android: HTC's France boss says they'll always have more "flagship" products on WinMo

Chris Ziegler

In an interview with French site Mobinaute, HTC's chief exec for France and Benelux Frédéric Tassy opened up about his company's strategies for its two platforms -- Windows Mobile and Android -- and the takeaway is that WinMo fans have nothing to worry about in the short term. Citing the Touch HD as a prime example, Tassy says that HTC will "always [have] more flagship products on Windows Mobile," which doesn't really bode well for huge, Snapdragon-powered WVGA sets with Rosie installed -- unless they're eclipsed by WinMo 7 phones in the lineup with even better specs, we suppose. Other notable tidbits include a claim that HTC isn't working on any Android netbooks at the moment, and -- cover your ears, portrait QWERTY folks -- a mention that the company isn't sure there's a market for non-touch Android phones right now, despite the fact that a non-touch prototype was front and center during Android's PR tour early last year. We'll have to keep an eye on that one, because we're not convinced.
