X

BREAKING NEWS: HTC is set to hold a major press conference with CEO Peter Chou claiming that he is going to make a “major news announcement” this morning. Tipped is possible deal with Apple or aquisition.The event that is being held in LA in the USA is tipped to involve Apple or Microsoft.

Breaking news events like this are rarely associated with a new product lauch. The timing is after the US markets have closed.

The company wouldn’t say what was involved but would have CEO Peter Chou speaking during a conference call live from LA. No other direction was given.

Some observers are saying that a possibility exists that it might have reached a settlement with Apple. HTC has signaled a willingness to make a deal with Apple following its loss in an ITC patent dispute and was facing a possible repeating with the start of a second investigation. Buyouts of S3 and Dashwire, which many believe were for patents, may not have given HTC any safeguards.

Electronista said that a small chance exists of a takeover, such as by Microsoft. The Windows Phone developer has been eager to buy market share and made its deal with Nokia for the same reason. HTC’s relatively large size, however, as well as antitrust concerns might keep Microsoft from risking such a deal.
