As HTC sees its Android sales collapse, the Taiwanese smartphone maker is looking to Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 8 platform to help turn its luck. Jason Mackenzie, HTC president of sales and marketing, revealed HTC' plan is to go big on Windows Phone 8, and that they've got very concrete carrier support in every region of the world, including the US.
There's some very good news for Windows Phone fans here; HTC says that it's also committed to bringing out some of its best industrial design talent in support of Windows Phone. "[We've got] a unique (industrial design) language for Windows Phones, a language that can be held up by Microsoft as a flagship." That's not something that other Android-centric OEMs, who look at Windows Phone as a secondary product (at best), can say.

Regardless, Mackenzie talks a lot about 'balanced portfolios' and 'growing Windows Phone,' and although he's quick to promise that this doesn't mean 'dialing back on Android,' that's certainly what it sounds like.
