HTC Corporation formalized today a memorandum of understanding covering "substantive cooperation on TD-SCDMA" with China Mobile, Ltd., China's largest telecommunications service provider. TD-SCDMA, a pretty propriety 3G standard, is the first international technology standard for which administration and ownership of related intellectual property rights (IPR) are based in China. The standard also marks an important milestone in the innovation and growth of China's telecommunications sector. In signing this MOU, HTC and China Mobile are embarking on a wide-ranging, substantive partnership that will cover technical research, product development, market research and customer service.

HTC Chairman Cher Wang, commenting on the new MOU, noted, "China Mobile is one of the world's leading telecommunications companies. We look forward to developing together many advantages that enhance our core competitive strengths and deliver to Chinese consumers smart phone products that are increasingly user-friendly and intuitive. HTC CEO Peter Chou added, "Going forward, HTC will actively develop intelligent advanced wireless broadband products based on the TD-SCDMA standard, and will work closely with China Mobile to design and make products tailored to the needs of the China market – products that will deliver to Chinese consumers mobile telecommunications products incorporating cutting-edge conveniences, features and technologies.

While it's not yet said which devices users in China can expect: Windows Mobile or Android, it's mentioned that the cooperation will initially focus on enhancing China Mobile's current flagship TD-SCDMA products. However, it should be noticed that China Mobile is a founding member of the Open Handset Alliance which represents the Android OS!

Both parties will coordinate efforts to ensure developed mobile phone products address China market demand trends.
Cooperation also covers the development and promotion of TD-LTE terminals. Both parties will work continuously to streamline and improve the communication channels essential to cooperative product R&D.

Cheers ~ Arne
