All Things D is still hosting their D8 Conference today, but a very interesting interview between Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg and HTC’s CEO Peter Chou sneaked out sometime yesterday. With Android being their biggest focus currently, it’s only natural that he had some things to say regarding the OS.
One interesting question Mossberg asked was regarding the newly-launched HTC EVO 4G and its battery life, stating that it runs down “alarmingly fast”. Chou counters this question saying that if you’re a heavy mobile user – especially on today’s smartphones by any manufacturer – then poor battery life is just a by-product of that. He alludes to the fact that their phones have removable batteries while the iPhone, specifically, does not.
He also made some comments on things such as the company’s plans to enter the US stock market and the recent troubles at Foxconn. It’s a great read so head over to All Things D to check it out if you need to pass some time today.
