Would WinMo even be relevant without HTC?

I've been noticing how all the most sought after WinMo phones have been HTC made.

They just happen to have phones that make the WinMo experience worth it. Motorola took a stab at it and failed.

Re: Would WinMo even be relevant without HTC?

yes. it would still be relevant. just not as much to the caasual user. in the buisness and delivery world its uber important. for syncing with outlook or using word mobile. almost every delivery driver i run across has a winmo pda. i sign on about 12 of them a week. all of them with no sense ui or even a phone. with molbile printers on there waist. in the pda non phone world, nothing can replace winmo.

Re: Would WinMo even be relevant without HTC?

In a word, no.

I can say without question that HTC has single-handedly kept WinMo alive. The work they've done to skin the OS into something that even sort of keeps up with people's expectations in an iPhone world is huge. And for you SPB Mobile Shell and Samsung TouchWiz fans, I'd argue that HTC should be credited for raising the bar of what can be done on WM. They were really the trailblazers on this, starting with the Touch.

Since the iPhone came out, I don't think there's been a particularly successful WinMo phone with the stock WinMo 6.0/6.1 interface.

Honestly I've barely ever seen a winmo phone in public that wasnt htc made. Every once in a while I'll see Moto Q's about but thats it

I guess there just not popular around here. Blackberry Pearls and Curves are the popular most popular smartphones in cleveland I would say. I remember a girl in my class had a centro for a while last year
