Microsoft Job Listing Hints, HTC Working On A Windows 10 Smartphone

Microsoft job listing hints out that it might see itself manufacturing its own powered Windows 10 smartphone by HTC.

A post that was pushed out originally in December last year stating that HTC is considered a partner among Microsoft's third-party phone device. Which shows that the company based in Redmond is searching for a Director of Account Management in Taipei, Taiwan where the phone is manufactured. His task is to bring HTC to work for Windows 10 products on the market.

The job posting reads:  "This person will lead all aspects of sales and business development interaction with HTC, one of our top third-party phone device partner accounts," in addition it says, "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,"

Windows Mobile's operating system supported HTC's first phones such as HTC Touch Diamond, HTC Touch Pro, HTC Imagio and HTC HD2. Then Android came in and took over building its devices such as T-Mobile G1 and Nexus 1.

Finally its manufacturers pushed forward to making the One M8 version by Windows in the U.S. Even though the phone tried to offer international variant in different markets, Windows device consumers did not earn recognition to the handset.

Nonetheless HTC's speculation to give up Android didn't not stop there, as it prepared to equip itself to release the phone's next flagship. A phone that is scheduled to come out on April, One M10 runs Google's operating system.

Currently, HTC remains hidden to whether it will proceed on the production of Windows 10 powered-phones.

According to a report from Softpedia stating, the phone's release will rely on how good Android's forthcoming flagship would make sale starting at this year's second quarter.
