Introduction and History
HTC stands for high tech computer corporation, and was founded in Taiwan. HTC was primarily a handset focused company that focused in consumer electronics. The evolution of mobile phones into smartphone have drastically shifted their focus from consumer electronics in the mass market into a more technological, research and development focused approach aimed to differentiate from competitors. In 2016, HTC began to diversify its business beyond smartphones, partnering with Valve to produce virtual reality platform known as HTC Vive. Significant research and development have been done in regards to this segment as well as their pixel technology smartphones, before about half of the research were sold to Google for 2017 for US$1.1 Billion.
