HTC Corporation today announced a partnership with KDDI, one of the Japanese largest telecommunications companies, to sell HTC handsets across Japan from later this year. The two companies, KDDI and Okinawa Cellular Phone, announced that they would be unveiling the first model, the E30HT Windows Mobile smartphone, from September 28th to October 4th at CEATEC, Japan's largest electronics products exhibition. Commercial sales of the E30HT, which is based on the HTC Touch Pro, are slated for spring 2009. The model will support KDDI plans to deliver a broader, more innovative array of 3G products and services to its customers.

HTC is committed to providing consumers in Japan with products that are powerful, innovative and offer a broad range of connectivity and information capabilities.

"Our goal is to provide customers the most advanced services all the time, to meet with wide variety of requirements, which demands quick and flexible mobile devices developments. KDDI is pleased to select HTC, who has established worldwide product delivery with proven speedy and innovative development capability. We believe that HTC Window Mobile devices will enrich the "au" product portfolio and will surely enable more detailed solutions for each enterprise customer, too." said Takashi Tanaka, Associate Senior Vice President and Member of the Board, KDDI.

"Customers in Japan have become accustomed to having the most advanced mobile phones in the world. This focus and attention to mobile innovation inspire HTC to introduce more advanced, stylish mobile phones in Japan," said David Kou, country manager, HTC Nippon.

What makes me kind of wonder is that it takes so long, from showing it up the first time on an exhibition to release it to the market.
