Taiwan based smartphone manufacturer, HTC has announced plans to lease space for a new R&D office in North Carolina, USA. During the first quarter of 2011 HTC expects to employ approximately 45 people in its facility, conducting research into multiple areas of wireless technology, with plans to grow further during 2011 and into the future.
"HTC has been successful bringing its unique brand of people-centric innovation to consumers, and with the establishment of this new R&D office, we are taking an important step to extend our leadership position in the wireless industry," said Ron Louks, chief strategy officer for HTC Corporation. "Durham is a perfect place to open our new R&D office because we are able to tap into this deep pool of technical talent that complements HTC's leading-edge R&D efforts going on around the world."
With the opening of its new Durham location, HTC will have three dedicated R&D locations in the United States.
Currently, HTC has a location in Seattle focused on creating user experience design, including its branded HTC Sense user experience, and creates industrial designs through its One & Co subsidiary located in San Francisco. Along with these R&D facilities, HTC's Americas headquarters are located in Bellevue, Wash. Altogether, HTC currently employs approximately 250 people in the United States and over 10,000 people worldwide.
