    Looking at available insurance replacements has nothing to do with which company actually makes the handset. Some insurance programs will replace with whatever they happen to consider to be "equivalent".

    You can always check the mfg's site. Audiovox lists its associated brands right there on the homepage. No HTC to be found.

    HTC is actually an OEM for other companies as well as its own brand.

    OLED is about 75% thinner than a TFT LCD. There is no possible way they can fit a TFT screen in that phone. TFT screens require a backlight OLED (organic light emitting diode) is its own light source.

    HTC is a Chinese company formed in 1997. They made phones for other companies until recently (they were the OEM), and have been quite successful creating their own technology, which is different for a Chinese company... as most just copy existing technology.

    no it isn't

    Welcome to Audiovox Corporation - based in Hauppauge, New York

    About HTC - Contact Us - based in Bellevue, Washington

    They are most certainly NOT the same company. Especially if you consider that Audiovox has always been an American company, and HTC is a Chinese based company.

    Audiovox SMT5600 GSM Windows Mobile Smartphone (HTC Typhoon, C500, SP3), Mobile Tech Review

    I know its old, semi irrelevent but HTC was audiovox before HTC.. when I wake up Ill dig further..

    Audiovox wasnt a company known for 'high performance' and when companies change their names, its usually to try and 're-brand' themselves, get a new image, so its no surprise that being audiovox isnt something that HTC may particularly want to include in their 'About' section.

    I've been in the car audio industry for about 20 years now. Audiovox was one of the founding companies. I have quite a few friends there. I typically find out about subsidiaries before they're announced.

    I'm pretty sure HTC made the phone you put in that link, and sold it to others with slight changes (or none, depending on the exclusivity contracts)

    Yea I think I fell victim to Hitlers 'The Big Lie" theory, "If you hear something enough times, you start to believe it"

    My first car phone in, 97 was audiovox.. ahh those were the days, $1900 or so for the phone and like $2.95 a minute..

    As far as I can tell, Audiovox and UTStarcomm aren't manufacturers... they're a branding and distribution company, like RCA. They license their names to products made by smaller manufacturers (like Pantech) and distribute their products.
