HTC Corporation, a global designer of mobile devices, has announced the acquisition of Seattle-based Dashwire, Inc., the maker of the Dashworks platform that provides mobile and web applications, enabling people to easily setup and personalize their smartphones, and seamlessly access their mobile content across multiple screens and services.  Dashwire will become a wholly owned subsidiary of HTC.

“Cloud services are key to delivering the promise of connected services to our customers,” said Fred Liu, president of engineering and operations, HTC Corporation. “People want access to all of their important content wherever they are on any device. The addition of Dashwire’s cutting-edge sync services and deep mobile cloud experience strengthens our ability to deliver these services in a more powerful way.”

HTC will utilize Dashwire’s cloud sync and device set up products to extend the HTCSense.com cloud services it launched last year.

“Dashwire was founded with the conviction that mobile cloud services would fundamentally change how people create, connect with and share their content across their devices,” said Ford Davidson, founder and CEO of Dashwire. “HTC shares the mobile cloud computing vision with Dashwire which makes it exciting for us to be joining the HTC family to drive even more innovation in this space.”

Dashwire, Inc. was founded in 2006 to help people get the most out of their mobile device experiences by seamlessly integrating the device and world it captures with the web. Dashwire is a privately held company headquartered in Seattle, Washington, USA. The company is backed by Trilogy Equity Partners and Best Buy Capital.

By putting people at the center of everything it does, HTC creates innovative devices that better serve the lives and needs of individuals. The company is listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange under ticker 2498.
