HTC Promises “Major News Announcement” on Thursday
Taiwanese cell phone maker HTC has said it has some big news to announce on Thursday, scheduling a morning news conference with CEO Peter Chou.
The conference call with reporters is slated for 8:30 a.m. PT.
Among the only hints in the terse announcement was the fact that the news is being made in Los Angeles, Calif.
Is the fast-growing cell phone company getting its star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? I’ll try to find out, but celebrity gossip is always welcome at my e-mail address (email@example.com).
Update, 5:15 p.m. And here’s the scoop: HTC is investing $300 million in Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine’s Beats Electronics.
