HTC has denied rumours that its much-anticipated Windows Phone 7 smartphones will ship late, potentially meaning they would not be on sale on Friday.
The handsets, including the most-wanted HTC HD7 and the cheap as chips 7 Trophy, are due to go on sale across UK carriers on October 21st.
Rumours have since surfaced that problems with customisations HTC has made to Microsoft’s operating system are to blame and that this could hit stocks.
However, HTC has now moved to quash the speculation, which it claims is groundless.
A spokesperson for the Taiwanese phone maker told Zdnet: “We are shipping our (WP7) phones this week, as planned.
“Everything pointing to a delay in delivery is wrong.”
Stocks of HTC WP7 phones could be crucial to the operating system’s success, given the brand’s new-found voguishness among tech fans following the huge sales of its Android powered Desire and Legend handsets.
