Rumor says HTC developing streaming music service

Feb 15, 2012


Also among upcoming products, the report says, is a wireless boom box that will likely use a Bluetooth connection to play music streamed from HTC mobile devices. Beat Audio already offers a similar product and has said it wants to pursue other similar offerings – with HTC as a partner, that could mean some interesting devices connecting through Android to other mobile devices and services.

HTC’s streaming music service could be announced as early as next month’s Mobile World Congress, the GigaOM report says, which is an event at which HTC said during a recent conference call with analysts it would be attempting to make a big splash. With the new service, plus a fresh crop of 4G LTE devices, HTC seems to be hoping to differentiate itself from competitors such as Samsung and Motorola in the growing Android field.
