Windows Phone officially hits China with HTC Eternity

updated 07:55 am EDT, Wed March 21, 2012

HTC Eternity goes on sale in China

Following an early tease, Microsoft as promised launched Windows Phone in China on Wednesday. The initial phone, the HTC Eternity, is an adaptation of the Titan, keeping its 4.7-inch screen, eight-megapixel back camera, and 1.3-megapixel front camera. The Chinese version is unlocked and comes with "popular" Chinese apps already loaded.

Any local phone will have support for both simplified Chinese as well as traditional. The text-heavy focus potentially plays well into China by using its more elaborate characters across the whole interface.

More phones are expected shortly, including a Nokia launch on March 28. The introduction a week later may bring the Lumia 610, Lumia 719C, and possibly others arrive at the same time. Locally-designed phones like the ZTE Orbit may follow later.
