Software giant Microsoft Corporation has officially launched its Windows Phone 7 platform in China at an event in Beijing. Microsoft also revealed that it will partner with no fewer than four handset makers in China to sell its mobile operating system platform.
According to the Windows Steam blog, the HTC Triumph (which is know elsewhere as HTC Eternity) is confirmed as the first handset to be launched in China with Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system. HTC Triumph will go on sale ‘unlocked’ and open to all carriers. The HTC Triumph handset is equipped with a 4.7 inches screen, front- and rear-facing cameras, and comes pre-installed with some Chinese apps that are quite popular among the people of China.
