HTC CEO Peter Chou to make major announcement on Thursday morning

HTC CEO Peter Chou to make major announcement on Thursday morning
So just what is on Peter Chou's mind? We will know soon enough when the CEO of HTC makes a major announcement Thursday morning at 11:30am EDT. There is some speculation that Chou will comment on the patent infringement case that Apple won against HTC. The last time we reported on Chou's comments on the case, he called it a mere distraction.

HTC has some devices upcoming like the HTC Puccini tablet coming to AT&T, the high end HTC Vigor for Verizon and the HTC Kingdom for Sprint. But at this point, any announcement concerning launch dates, pricing or spec changes relating to the trio would most likely come from the respective carrier. As far as being a new phone or tablet, that is doubtful as major new product announcements are usually given more than just 24 hours of lead time.

It wasn't so long ago that HTC was a mere contract manufacturer in the industry. Now, when the CEO of the Taiwan based company talks, even if it just a teleconference, it is considered big news. Check with us tomorrow morning and we will let you know what Mr. Chou tells the world.

**UPDATE**

The news is out. HTC has entered into an agreement with Beats by Dr. Dre to give owners of HTC smartphones the chance to hear the highest-quality sound possible. The Beats by Dr. Dre blog has leaked the story ahead of Peter Chou's teleconference.

What we know is that HTC will invest $300 million in Beats Electronics LLC and in return become a partner with the company. Beats Electronics remains an independent company and the first HTC phone to include Beats by Dr. Dre will come out this fall with Best Buy among other retailers, offering the smartphone.
