PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The Verge has learned that HTC's Chief Product Officer, Kouji Kodera, left the company last week. Kodera was responsible for HTC's overall product strategy, which makes the departure especially notable on the heels of the global launch of the make-or-break One. It's not just Kodera. In the past three-odd months, HTC has lost a number of employees in rapid succession." I really hope HTC pulls it together.

I think Nokia should have made their own OS, gone with WP or done both.

Certainly I agree Android was a no-go. It would reduce Nokia to just another phone maker, which would be sad for a company that was once synonymous with the mobile phone.

I'm sure Microsoft would welcome HTC and give them support if they're serious about WP phones.

+1 Insightful for mentioning the third option of Nokia growing their own OS.

That one was also possible at some point, they only blew it by letting the Symbian team stagnate, let their code rot, and impose their tyranny upon other teams.

It's such a shame to leave so many of these impressive OS projects Nokia had being left to rot, in favor of the latest Microsoft mobile failure of all things... Though I can agree that Android (or iOS for that matter, if it was possible to license it) wouldn't have done much better.
