HTC Partners With IBM
HTC has a new partnership with IBM which they expect will help the company reach its goal of selling 100-million devices per year. The new agreement with IBM will help HTC gain a stronger presence in the enterprise world with the integration of IBM’s smart business applications on HTC devices. Details about the partnership are not clear yet, but David Jaeger, executive director Global Enterprise and Services at HTC said:
It’s only been really relatively recently that HTC has broken into the enterprise space. We’re driving toward that magic 100-million device number globally. We see IBM as the gold standard for an enterprise partnership. We want to make sure if IBM is talking about Android or tablets, HTC is in the conversation.
As we see as a trend in 2012 big companies are making strategic associations with other big players, do you think HTC will gain with this partnership more space on the competitive mobile world?

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
