HTC Goes Deeper In The Cloud

HTC has gobbled up a Seattle based company called Dashware Inc. Dashware specializes in cloud based computing and is conveniently headquartered near HTC’s US base of operations.

HTC started working on their cloudbased initiatives earlier this year when they introduced htcsense.com to the HTC Sense UI experience.  With sense.com users can backup, share interests and info with other users, even find, lock and wipe a device.  Adding Dashware to the mix means that HTC can go even further with HTCsense.com, we could see things like news aggregation, document creation and sharing, and more all branded under the HTC Sense umbrella.

“Cloud services are key to delivering the promise of connected services to our customers,” said Fred Liu, president of engineering and operations, HTC Corporation. “People want access to all of their important content wherever they are on any device. The addition of Dashwire’s cutting-edge sync services and deep mobile cloud experience strengthens our ability to deliver these services in a more powerful way.”

“Dashwire was founded with the conviction that mobile cloud services would fundamentally change how people create, connect with and share their content across their devices,” said Ford Davidson, founder and CEO of Dashwire. “HTC shares the mobile cloud computing vision with Dashwire which makes it exciting for us to be joining the HTC family to drive even more innovation in this space.”

HTC’s Sense UI is definitely one of the more desirable OEM UI’s added on top fo Android.  There most recent versions for both the phone and the tablet add a crisp, fluid user experience with easy to understand controls to give users access to the phone or tablets best features.
