HTC committed to Android

HTC committed to Android
August 23rd, 2011
With Google’s plans to acquire Motorola, handset manufacturer HTC has revealed that they are not planning to move over to another operating system, opting to stay committed to Android.
“It’s not the operating system, it’s the ecosystem. We think we can find a way to differentiate to add value, but at the same time leverage our partners, Google and Microsoft, since we have such a great relationship with them,” HTC’s CEO Peter Chou told The Wall Street Journal.

Chou also added that the Google-Motorola deal is good for business, as Google will gain a massive amount of patents, which the company can then use to support and protect the Android operating system and its partners.
“HTC has been on an acquisition spree itself. Earlier this month it bought a controlling stake in mobile audio firm Beats Electronics for $309 million, recently acquired graphics chip maker S3 for $300 million and cloud computing company Dashwire for up to $18.5 million.
