HTC is throwing a party on October 7 in Taiwan, where it is inviting the press to see what it has dreamt up. The date seems to be a bit early for showing off Windows Phone 7 gear, but then CEO Peter Chou has done it once before – he announced at his press conference that Microsoft will be launching Windows Mobile 6.5 an hour later at MWC in 2009. Will HTC steal LG’s thunder, which is holding a major press event in Singapore a week later to launch the Optimus 7 and claiming it to be the world’s first commercially available Windows Phone 7 smartphone? Or will it be just an Android Internet Tablet and a couple of Android smartphones? We doubt the latter and are placing our bets on Windows Phone 7 devices and with that goes whatever little chance LG had to stake claim to being the first to launch Windows Phone 7. The million dollar question is, whether Microsoft knows about HTC’s plans!
