Taoyuan, Taiwan – September 5, 2007 – HTC Corp. ("HTC", TAIEX: 2498), the world's leading provider of Microsoft Windows Mobile-based smart devices, and Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of advanced wireless technologies and mobile data solutions, today highlighted their long-term strategic relationship and the numerous device innovations they have achieved. On hand for the announcement were Peter Chou, CEO of HTC and Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, CEO of Qualcomm.
HTC is the first company to introduce cutting-edge devices based on Qualcomm's latest dual-core chipsets, the Mobile Station Modem (MSM) MSM7500 and MSM7200 solutions.  The flexibility of these chipsets has enabled HTC to develop a variety of devices with different form factors that meet the needs of a variety of customers. Having already launched the first Smartphones based on the MSM7500 chipset and now launching devices based on the MSM7200 chipset, by the end of 2007, HTC will have launched more than 10 devices based on these two dual-core solutions from the Company's MSM7xxx-series platform. Some of the devices already available include the Mogul by HTC, HTC 6800, HTC 5800 and HTC TyTN II.
"Qualcomm is pleased to continue our long relationship with HTC with these latest innovative devices utilizing our industry-leading mobile broadband and multimedia technologies," said Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, CEO of Qualcomm. "Our MSM7200 chipset, powering the latest UMTS Smartphones from HTC, will prove to be as compelling a combination as our previous successes with the popular MSM7500-based HTC 5800 and 6800 CDMA2000 Smartphones that are now shipping across North America."
"Since working first beginning to work with Qualcomm in 1998, the company has demonstrated a tremendous commitment to providing HTC with the most cutting-edge technology in the industry," said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC. "We are pleased to have a close strategic relationship with Qualcomm and look forward to bringing continued industry-changing devices to market."
The MSM7xxx-series chipsets from Qualcomm are the industry's first to integrate two distinct processors – each dedicated to modem and multimedia functions – to provide support for third-party operating systems, including Windows Mobile.  The MSM7500 for CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rev. A and MSM7200 for HSPA also feature  rich multimedia capabilities – such as VGA video encode/decode, 8 megapixel camera, and 3D graphics – as well as advanced data functionality with unsurpassed levels of integration.
The MSM7xxx-series of Qualcomm chipsets are designed to expand the reach of compelling, connected Smartphone devices into mainstream consumer markets.
