According to Reuters HTC will release a Windows 7 Phone by the end of this year.
Microsoft just announced that they reached a deal with HTC over mobile patents that result in royalty payments from HTC for Android phones. HTC has long been a partner with Microsoft and it is understandable that they reached such a deal to continue to make Windows phones.
Microsoft revealed Windows Phone 7 Series details back in February. Several handset makers are planning Windows 7 phones for the last quarter of 2010.
