HTC is working with Microsoft on Windows Phone 8.1 for the 8X


We don’t get a chance to talk about HTC phones much these days. That’s a shame, because, as we found out in our year-end awards, a lot of you are using the 8X. The North American product team at HTC did an AMA in the Android subreddit the other day, but some Windows Phone fans sneaked in a few questions. One particular user asked point-blank “is HTC done with Windows Phone?” This was their response:

“To say “done with Windows Phone” is a pretty blanket statement. I don’t think a company such as ourselves can ever say that point blank. As strong partners of Microsoft, we’re working with Microsoft on the Blue update on Windows Phone 8X and will continue to take new products into consideration. Nothing concrete right now, but who knows!”

That’s good news for all the HTC 8X users out there. The 8X is a really nice phone, and it deserves to be updated. We have always been fans of HTC devices here at WinSource. Hopefully HTC has something planned for a flagship Windows Phone 8.1 device. Nokia phones are amazing, but variety is always good. Do you have any interest in a HTC phone?

    Updated my HTC 8x today(2/25/2015), took a while, 2 hours, but works fine. Had to turn off IPV6 to stop WIFI from dropping.
