High Tech Computer Corporation, known by its abbreviation HTC, is a Taiwan-based manufacturer of Microsoft Windows Mobile portable devices. It was founded on May 15, 1997 and was strictly an outsourcing company, an Original Design Manufacturer (ODM). Today, HTC provides its own HTC self-branded products, as well as supporting its operator-branded products and its OEM partners. HTC also owns Dopod as a subsidiary company. HTC is also a member of the Open Handset Alliance, meaning that it will conform to standards that allow the open source Android operating system to run on its hardware; the company is reportedly working on an Android-based phone, dubbed the Dream, that will be on the market by the end of 2008.
