Beats president confirms it will be on "several new" HTC devices this fall

Beats president confirms it will be on
Last week, the breakup became official that Beats will be buying back the 25% stake in the company currently owned by HTC. But, that deal has not yet been completed, nor has the commercial deal between Beats and HTC. There has been speculation that upcoming HTC devices like the HTC One Max might not include Beats because of the breakup, but the Beats president Luke Wood has set the record straight.

Wood told

That "large-format device" is most likely the HTC One Max, but it is unclear what the other new devices might be. One could be the rumored HTC Windows Phone, and there has also been talk of an HTC tablet, although that chatter hasn't been pointing to this fall. Either way, right now Beats is still going to be on new HTC devices, but we can't say about what will happen down the road.

Beats is cool on HTC. HTC is in very difficult position, this is the time where HTC may rise or fall completely. They need to release products with competitive prices, HTC is having a very huge problem in competing with chinese OEMs and they also price their devices very high as compared to others in global market even Sony's phones are now-a-days affordable than HTC.

Probably referring to the Butterfly 2 and the phablet beast One Max. Still can't decide which one to wait for.
