HTC Corp

HTC Corporation is a Taiwan-based mobile manufacturing company that specializes in designing and manufacturing OEM-branded mobile devices.

Founded in 1997 by Cher Wang and Peter Chou, HTC initially stood for High-Tech Computer Corporation and manufactured notebook computers.

Since launching its own brand in late 2006, the company has introduced hundreds of HTC-branded products around the world. Its product portfolio includes smartphones and tablets powered by the Android and Windows Phone operating systems.

In 2006, it launched a new device with a unique form factor, the HTC Advantage, which had a 5” screen and full detachable QWERTY keyboard.

In 2007, HTC introduced the HTC Shift. Equipped with Windows Vista, this device included a 7-inch widescreen touch display and a 40 gigabyte hard drive. It also launched the HTC Touch in the same year, which was equipped with TouchFLO so that users simply sweep their finger across the screen to get access to the most commonly used content, contacts and features.

In 2009, HTC expanded its focus to devices based on Android, and further expanded to Windows Phone in 2010.

Some of HTC’s industry firsts are the 1080 pixel display - HTC DRIOD DNA (2012); smartphone with f2.0 aperture - HTC One X and S (2012); 4G LTE smartphone on Verizon and AT&T – HTC Thunderbolt and the HTC Vivid (2011); Android device – T-Mobile G1 (2008), Tri-band UMTS PDA (2005); and 3G Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 device – HTC Universal (2005).

HTC has made its name as the company behind many of the most popular operator-branded devices on the market. Its current flagship product is the Android-running HTC One.
