Coming by way of an official press release, HTC has announced plans to begin selling HTC-branded smartphone in China. And while that does not sound all that interesting to anyone outside of China — its nice to hear because the phones had already been available. Wait what, they are going to sell them, but they have been available. Right on both accounts — up until now the HTC phones have been sold under the name of Dopod. And in addition, HTC is also partnering with China Mobile to begin sales which will kick off with a few Android and a few Windows Mobile devices.

It is this customer-centric approach that has driven HTC’s global leadership position and has differentiated us.”
