    Boom, say hello to the Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:20:49 PM
    I bet Microsoft really influences phone design.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:21:09 PM
    Cue the funky product promotional video.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:21:25 PM
    Consumers want something personal and new, Chou says. Today, they are getting it.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:21:43 PM
    The phones feature different splashes of color, a la Nokia's Lumia line.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:21:52 PM
    Colors colors colors!
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:21:54 PM
    It looks like Windows phones will be all about color.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:22:13 PM
    Windows Phone 8X and 8S by HTC, Chou announces to applause.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:22:28 PM
    Both Chou and Ballmer pose for photos with the phones.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:22:41 PM
    Wow, can anyone say....Lumia! I've got deja vu big time!
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:22:49 PM
    Chou touts the beautiful design of hardware and software, says they are "magically thin."
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:23:01 PM
    This is the first phone designed from inside out to put people first, Chou says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:23:24 PM
    The experience on Windows Phone 8 is unlike other smartphones. No other phones keep you closer to the people and things that matter to you in life, Ballmer says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:23:35 PM
    HTC built the phone from the ground up to showcase the software, Ballmer says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:23:53 PM
    The Windows Phone 8X is truly a hero product, Ballmer says, citing the design, sound, and camera capabilities.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:24:18 PM
    It's a new approach to the branding and naming of these products, Ballmer says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:24:34 PM
    There's an opportunity to brand it in a clear way. This just is the Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S, Ballmer says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:24:48 PM
    We think this approach will help us tell our story clearly and crisply, Ballmer says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:24:55 PM
    I wonder what Nokia will say about that.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:25:11 PM
    Together with HTC, we have a very clear branding and go-to-market strategy, Ballmer says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:25:26 PM
    When someone wants a Windows Phone, they will think of the HTC product.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:25:33 PM
    That can't be good for Nokia, right?
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:25:42 PM
    When I saw these phones in person I really liked their slick looking design, I have to say.
  • Kent German 9/19/2012 3:25:44 PM

    The HTC Windows Phone 8S

  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:25:49 PM
    We are incredible enthused with what we can do together with our partners and HTC.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:26:05 PM
    Ballmer thanks HTC for the quality fo the products, and walks off the stage.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:26:08 PM
    Back to Chou.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:26:25 PM
    If you want Windows Phone, this is Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S, Chou repeats.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:27:00 PM
    Yeah, but will HTC do any better to convince people to jump onto the WP bandwagon?
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:27:05 PM
    Windows Phone 8X and 8S also have personality. Innovative design with eye-catching colors that really stand out, Chou says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:27:14 PM
    They look and feel like nothing else on the market, Chou says.
  • Kent German 9/19/2012 3:27:53 PM

    The HTC WIndows Phone 8X

  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:28:38 PM
    Windows Phone is very engaging, that's true...but it's not very customizable.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:29:50 PM
    HTC now mentioning WP8 Live Tiles.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:30:04 PM
    HTC's Scott Croyle, head of design, talks up the unique nature of the Windows Phone 8 software.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:30:08 PM
    Phones now the 3D embodiment of the Live Tile.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:30:09 PM
    Croyle takes a shot at the competition, says there hasn't been a phone that has fulfilled the potential of Windows Phone.

  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:30:36 PM
    HTC's Scott Croyle, head of design, has taken the stage.
  • sarahtew 9/19/2012 3:30:39 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:31:05 PM
    Combined HTC's unibody architecture with thin design for a sleek phone, Croyle says. Calls it seamless surfacing.
