PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Bloomberg: "Microsoft, which has tightly controlled the number of ARM-based devices it is supporting at first to ensure quality, opted not to work with HTC after initial discussions with the company, said two people familiar with the matter. The world's largest software maker decided HTC didn't have the sales volume needed and had less tablet experience than some of the other vendors it could choose to work with for the first round of devices, the people said." HTC was the first company to build a Microsoft-powered smartphone. Now, they're not allowed to build Windows 8 tablets.

Haha - man, if you can't find stable HTC device, then I really wonder, who can choose you as an IT consultant? :-) No offence, it is just that I live with HTC for so long, and I never ever seen a dialer crash. So you might be either unlucky, or they ship strange variants to US, or I don't know what. I own HTC Sensation, and HTC One X, and both work like a charm.
