different story, DigiTimes reported this week that High Tech Computer (HTC)
is expected to launch Qualcomm Snapdragon-based mobile devices in the second
quarter of 2009. According to market sources in Taiwan, HTC's Snapdragon device
will hit the market one quarter later than
last week's unveiled
Toshiba TG01 smartphone which also runs on the Snapdragon platform.
Sources are mentioning that HTC and Toshiba are among more than a dozen device
makers that have signed up with Qualcomm to develop mobile computing devices
using Snapdragon solutions. Those device makers also include Samsung, LG
Electronics, Acer, Asus, Quanta, Compal, Wistron, Inventec and Foxconn.
Although HTC has also entered design-in process for the development of Intel
Atom-based mobile devices, the company's Snapdragon-based products are set to
enter the market first, the sources noted.
