I thought the Treo 650, 700w, and 750 were pretty attractive too, but the Treo Pro is just sexy in my opinion. Well, DigiTimes is reporting why. No wonder, the ODM is HTC.
Taiwan-based High Tech Computer (HTC) has been chosen to manufacture Palm’s latest Windows Mobile-based smartphone, the Treo Pro, according to sources at handset vendors.
HTC’s experience manufacturing Windows Mobile-based smartphones is the main reason Palm selected the company to manufacture the smartphone for it, even thought they are competitors in the market. The smartphone is expected to launched in September this year.
With HTC also manufacturing Sony Ericsson’s Microsoft-based X1 smartphone, which will launch in the fourth quarter this year, Palm’s ODM business proportion among HTC’s total handset shipments will rise again. However, HTC has noted that its own-brand business will still be the main focus.
HTC is everywhere. Android, making the Treo Pro, the Xperia X1, and all their own hot devices. I need to see about getting some HTC stock.
