Fresh off its patent-related acquisition of S3 Graphics for $300 million, HTC this morning announced a new acquisition. This time they’re snapping up Dashwire, the maker of the Dashworks platform that lets users setup, personalize and access their content across a myriad of mobile devices. Dashwire will become a wholly owned subsidiary of HTC.
The company confirmed plans to tap Dashwire’s cloud-sync technology and device set up products “to extend the HTCSense.com cloud services it launched last year”. Here’s from HTC’s president of engineering and operations Fred Liu:
Cloud services are key to delivering the promise of connected services to our customers. 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.
