HTC and App Stores
I love this interview with Jon French of HTC. Not because of what he reveals about their approach to the Sense UI; not because after 10 years of Nokia and Sony Ericsson loyalty, I'm a happy HTC user myself; but because of this quote:
Plenty of previously agnostic OEMs have now launched app stores. Where’s yours?
We have no plans for an app store. HTC is not in that business. For us, it’s all about how you integrate the app store – whether Windows Marketplace or Android Market – into the experience of using the device.
How refreshing; a large player in mobile with no plans to open yet another app store!
