HTC Goes Deeper In The Cloud

HTC Corporation, a global designer of mobile devices, announced the acquisition of Seattle-based Dashwire, Inc., the maker of the Dashworks platform that provides mobile and web applications, enabling people to easily setup and personalize their smartphones, and seamlessly access their mobile content across multiple screens and services.  Dashwire will become a wholly owned subsidiary of HTC.

HTC started working on their cloudbased initiatives earlier this year when they introduced to the HTC Sense UI experience.  With 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, we could see things like news aggregation, document creation and sharing, and more all branded under the HTC Sense umbrella.
