Taiwanese Smartphone manufacturer HTC (High Tech Computer Corp.) buys 50% of mobile phone vendor Dopod.

Dopod actually specialized to sell Dopod branded HTC smartphones in Asia. Apparently HTC wants to be closer to the market. Dopod will act as a subsidiary of HTC.

Kind of an intersting move to buy one of their customers. HTC is I guess looking for ways to leverage their domination in the Windows smartphone market.
We reported about Dopod introducing the HTC Startrek in China early May.
