HTC Opts for Parrot Fashion

Handset maker HTC Corp and Parrot, which specialises in wireless peripherals for mobile phones, have announced an alliance to develop improved compatibility and overall user experience between the companies products. The alliance will see HTC working closely with Parrot to align product roadmaps, marketing efforts and channel development to provide an enhanced complimentary solution for customers.
While HTC smart devices offer users one device for all their content, Parrot provides the easy-to-use wireless peripherals to release that content wherever and whenever the user wants, says Parrot Founder and CEO, Henri Seydoux. This enables HTC users to maximise the use of their devices through Parrots technology.
Parrot manufactures a wide range of wireless mobile phone accessories for the car and home, from Bluetooth handsfree car kits, to wireless digital picture frames and hi-fi speaker systems. Parrots product range includes wireless peripherals to suit every environment for HTC devices – be it in the car, at home or in the office.
Florian Seiche, Vice President, HTC Europe, says that by working in tandem with Parrot HTC can enhance its offering of mobility and connectivity and add value for customers by providing them expanded capabilities to their devices.
HTC has been manufacturing Microsoft Windows Mobile-based Smartphones and PDAs for more than 10 years. The company launched its own consumer brand in 2006 and has since made great strides into both the corporate and consumer mobile markets. Its latest developments include the new Touch family of products including the HTC Touch, HTC Touch Dual and HTC Touch Cruise. All three devices incorporate HTCs touch-driven TouchFLO interface, and integrate seamlessly with Parrot accessories.
