Google closes HTC deal, the next Pixel phones could be developed in Taiwan
The acquisition of HTC's mobile business will make it easier for Google to build its smartphones since the search giant won't have to outsource the development of the next Pixel devices to another company. The experienced team of HTC engineers, which brought us the first touch-centric phone and the first metal-clad unibody smartphone, may prove to be exactly what Google needs to further improve its R&D abilities.
According to Google's Senior Vice President of Hardware, Rick Osterloh, the acquisition of HTC's mobile division will allow his company to expand its market share in the Asia Pacific region.
Taiwan is a “key innovation and engineering hub for Google,” Osterloh said in a blog post, and Taipei (Taiwan's capital city) is expected to become “the largest Google engineering site” in the Asia Pacific region.
