What is "HTC"?

High Tech Computer Corporation, known almost universally by the acronym HTC, is a Taiwan based designer and manufacturer of smartphone devices. The company generally creates a base design, gives it a "codename", such as Hermes, and then offers the devices to be sold rebranded by other companies, such as i-mate, or networks, such as T-Mobile or Orange. In 2006 HTC started offering devices in some markets under their own HTC brand. The company has long used its own Dopod house brand to sell devices directly in Asia.
