Who HTC is:
HTC Corp, (TAIEX: 2498) produces powerful handsets that continually push the boundaries of innovation to provide true mobile freedom.Founded in 1997 by Cher Wang, Chairwoman, HT Cho, Director of the Board & Chairman of HTC Foundation, and Peter Chou, President and CEO, HTC made its name as the company behind many of the most popular operator-branded devices on the market. It has established unique partnerships with key mobile brands, including the leading five operators in Europe, the top four in the US, and many fast-growing Asian operators. It has also brought products to market with industry leading OEM partners and, since June 2006, under its own HTC brand.HTC is one of the fastest-growing companies in the mobile sector and has achieved remarkable recognition over the past couple of years. Business Week ranked HTC as the second best performing technology company in Asia in 2007 as well as giving the company the number 3 spot in its Global listing in 2006.
Since launching its own brand 18 months ago the company has introduced dozens of HTC-branded products around the world. more>>
What HTC is Looking For:
Technology of interest:
Baseband — Innovative technologies that can dramatically shrink the size and cost of converged computing devices, especially in radio baseband and transceiver architectures.Antennas — Innovative technologies that can help address the multi-antenna challenges faced today. This can include innovative new structures or closed-loop tuning strategies to improve the transmit and receive antenna efficiency and performance, while hopefully reducing the volume requirements.Display and Touch — Novel solutions that are able to improve on the thickness, performance and/or cost of today’s touch and display solutions. Additionally, any technology that can reduce display illumination power (mW/cm2) while maintaining quality is very important. Flexible displays that can extend to 10 inches are also desirable.
User Experience/MMI — technologies which overcome the inherent limitations of the MMI in a phone size form factor. Innovative audio/video/sensory input technologies such as gesture control, context/situational awareness and output technologies or methodologies are all of high interest.
Centering the Phone — Technologies that are able to put the phone ‘front and center’ in many scenarios remains important. This includes:
- Sensor data aggregation – hardware and software that allow the phone to aggregate data through a collection of sensors (medical);
- Entertainment hub – integrated solutions that allow the phone to serve as an entertainment hub (gaming, movies) with low latency, low bandwidth, and high quality (HD) wireless video transmission;
- Control – solutions that allow the phone to control surroundings through seamless interaction with other devices are all important.
Memory — Technologies that are able to improve real-world write performance, and also cost-per-bit while trading off certain attributes such as write-cycle duration are important.
Battery — Innovative solutions that can improve the volumetric efficiency of cells while also improving overall cell safety remain very important.
2D/3D Image and Video capture — Applications and software technology that make use 2 cameras in innovative ways and improve overall image quality of picture and video.
Group sharing and collaboration — Applications and services that close the gaps in relationships and productivity created by our highly mobile lives.
Social and Location based applications and services.
Green — HTC remains committed to reducing the impact of technology and thus innovative solutions that can improve the recyclability of products is desired.
