HTC’s Chairwoman Cher Wang has revealed the corporation has been mulling around buying their own os.
“We have given it thought and we have discussed it internally, but we will not do it on impulse,” Wang said in an interview with the Economic Observer of China, via FocusTaiwan.tw.
Recent move with Google in the buying Motorola has established doubt among Android OEMs, causing Samsung shifting Bada development in to large gear.The only real OS of notice that’s presently up for sale is actually webOS, that has a significantly ruined brand.
Wang even so stated there is absolutely no urgency to buy yet another OS at the moment, because HTC by itself was not dependent on the actual operating system:
“We can use any OS we want. We are able to make things different from our rivals on the second or third layer of a platform,” Wang said. “Our strength lies in understanding an OS, but it does not mean that we have to produce an OS.”
HTC having said that carried on to state assist for the Google buying Motorola, stating it wasn’t distinct exactly how Google would certainly move forward with managing the company, particularly in terms of branding, however Google would need the patents to guard Android development.
