HTC Breakaway Company Kazam Unveils First Smartphones

Early this year two HTC executives quit their jobs to form their own company. Former head of sales Michael Coombes and former marketing director for UK region James Atkins formed a new European company called Kazam which they said that will provide “stunning design, robust hardware, and intuitive technology, underpinned with improved customer service.” There was no report then on whether the company would be using the Android platform.

Today Kazam has unveiled its first line of smartphone products, seven in total, and all running on Android. It’s going to be sold before Christmas and will compete with other smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung and Apple.
