HTC has announced a new partnership with Beats Electronics to create a superior mobile audio experience. We had heard rumblings earlier of a major announcement in the works for HTC and while speculation ranged from a new tablet to new phones to even a sponsorship for an Anthrax concert tour, it remained a bit of a mystery until just a little while ago.
Beats Electronics is the creation of music master Dr. Dre and the chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records Jimmy Lovine. We all know HTC from their quality Windows Phones. Together the two companies hope to deliver unbeatable sound to HTC Phones. The business venture will eventually result in a new line of HTC devices integrated with Beats sound innovations that should be available later this Fall.
There was no hint as to what type devices will be headed to market and we can only guess if they involve new Windows Phones. Maybe an updated version of the Surround with Beats audio? We'll keep tabs on the press event tomorrow and if more information becomes available, we'll be sure to pass it on.
