HTC to Launch Its Own Mobile OS in China [WSJ]




Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC Corporation is working on its own mobile operating system, which is set to be officially launched in China and which should be exclusive for the market, a recent article on the Wall Street Journal reads.

Apparently, HTC is focused on integrated Chinese-specific apps and services into this mobile OS, including Weibo, the Twitter-like microblog. Expected to become official before the end of this year, the platform would be part of Chinese government’s effort to broaden the spectrum of homegrown software, which would allow it to detach from US companies.

No specific info on what the upcoming OS would be like has been provided as of now, and it remains to be seen whether it will be based on Android, the same as platforms used by various phone makers in China are at the moment.
