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.
