We all know HTC has been doing pretty well for themselves as of late. They’ve seen the successful launch of some of the biggest Android handsets on just about every carrier. When it comes to the Android community, HTC seems to be the handset of choice for die-hard techies, like myself. Because of their recent popularity, they’ve seen their stock rise about 33% this year and their market cap hit a whopping $33.88 billion dollars taking the top spot from Nokia.
So what’s next for the smartphone giant? Well, if the recent job posting on their site is any indication, it appears they are looking for an “automotive business development director” for North America. So it looks like we might be seeing our favorite Taiwanese company take a dive into the automobile market.
Now, before you start jumping to conclusions of a Tegra 5 powered smart-car, their job posting describes an “experienced leader in the automotive electronics industry” to “develop business in the automotive market.” This will most likely include those fancy navigation units and touch screen panels you see in all those luxury cars these days.
With the impending launch of the Sensation on T-Mobile and Evo 3D on Sprint, I think this will continue to be another great year for HTC and expect great things from them in the future.
