It turns out that Malvado's story yesterday giving us a "heads up" on the "major" HTC announcement was absolutely correct. Yesterday, we were teased that HTC would make a "major announcement" today. The official announcement has been made and it turned out to be a partnership with "Beats by Dre". If you are unfamiliar, Beats by Dre (a.k.a Beats Electronics) is a music production company that also sells audio accessories like headphones. It was started by famed rapper Dr. Dre. In the music industry, it is a well recognized brand, and the partnership means that HTC will actually be coming out with Beats by Dre branded integrated Android devices and accessories. Above is an official video for the announcement, and below is the full press release.
