Google in "final negotiations" with HTC

Friday, September 8th, 2017 | Gadgets

HTC struggles for survival for years. The stock market value is as bad as it has been for more than ten years. Now Google is to rescue the Taiwanese. The negotiations are about to be completed.

          With HTC, which was launched as an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) more than 20 years ago, it looks far from rosy. For years, the company has created the big players such as Samsung, Apple and others. The last top smartphones such as the current HTC U11 (test) and last year's HTC 10 were indeed exceptionally good devices – but wanted to buy them but hardly anyone would. The publication of the current financial report once again shows the dramatic state of the company: August was the worst month in 13 years, sales fell by 51.5 percent compared to the previous month and 54.3 percent to August 2016. Or a new "killer -Smartphone "for HTC's long-term financial rescue is questionable. The demolition of part of the company would be a possible option. Corresponding reports on the sale of the VR department have been available since the end of August. Given that this part of the company is running better than the smartphone department, such a step would be unwise. Why should a company separate from a healthy business?

      A Taiwan report from the China Times could turn the hand for HTC soon. According to the newspaper Google would be with HTC in final negotiation talks. Google takes two options into consideration: Either position Google as a strategic partner HTCs, or HTC is completely taken over. The VR department vice is not part of the negotiations.Gen unselfish would be the investment in HTC's smartphone division, after all, Google with its pixel division for quite some time own smartphones. With the close partnership or takeover, Google could fall back on the expertise, patents and resources of HTC's. The first two pixel models were created last year by HTC. This year, the Taiwanese are responsible for at least one of the smartphones, although it is rumored that in both a pressure-sensitive frame like the HTC U11 will be found. The second model is to be built by LG. Digital marketing in focus Now every week intensified in HORIZONT Print! Interest? Then best to use our current test-read offer with digital marketing focus. Here's the orderFor Google it would be the second deal with a smartphone manufacturer. The company recently bought the Motorola 2011 smartphone pioneer for 12.5 billion US dollars, and three years later Lenovo again appealed for an appel and an egg buffoon. At the time, however, Google was primarily about patents to protect itself against Apple and other companies in the now almost completed patent wars. HTC and Google have a long history, however: the first Android device was the HTC Dream, which in Germany as T -Mobile G1 was sold. The first smartphone from Google's Nexus family, the Nexus One, also came from the Taiwanese. This article first appeared on t3n.de
