How HTC and Android Are Taking Over the Smartphone Market With Manufacturing Digital

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - May 24, 2011) - Although HTC had humble beginnings producing mainly notebook computers, the company has been responsible for several breakthrough innovations. Ever since collaborating with tech heavyweights Microsoft and Google, the company has grown significantly.

HTC was chosen by Microsoft as a hardware platform development partner for its Windows Mobile operating system. As a result, HTC created the first Microsoft-powered smartphone in 2002, the first Microsoft Smart Music Phone in 2004, and the first Microsoft 3G phone in 2005.

Not content with these innovations, HTC also worked with Google to build mobile phones running its Android operating system and subsequently, released the world's first Android powered device in 2008.

One key innovative feature of these devices is HTC Sense, a graphical user interface which works together with core features of the Android operating system. HTC Sense optimises and integrates key Android features to make widgets and apps truly cohesive to make devices even more user-friendly.

HTC has invested heavily in research and development, a department which accounts for a quarter of its employees, and a world-class high-volume manufacturing facility, both of which are based in Taiwan. It is this level of investment and close attention to detail during the design and development stage which has seen HTC take on established industry rivals.
