HTC To make Major news announcement tomorrow

HTC is apparently going to announce something big tomorrow morning but as of right now we can only speculate about what it is all about. Here’s the media alert that I’ve received from from HTC’s PR team just a few minutes ago:

Media Alert … Media Alert … Media Alert

HTC to Hold Teleconference to Make Major News Announcement
Peter Chou, HTC CEO, will speak.

TAOYUAN, Taiwan, and LOS ANGELES— August 10, 2011 — HTC CEO Peter Chou will hold a live teleconference from Los Angeles on August 11, 2011 to make a major announcement.

Teleconference Information:

Thursday, August 11, 2011

8:30 a.m. PT

What are you guesses ? HTC sealing an out-of court deal with Apple? HTC abandoning Android to go 100% with Windows Phone 7 because of Apple’s patent suits? (hey that would be interesting no ?)

UPDATE: Here’s what’s going to be announced: A $300 Million investment in Beats Electronics

    Probably another flavor of the month flagship Android device.

    I don’t think so. HTC (or any other company) has never done such a thing (surprise Media Alert announcement less than 24hrs before the confcall) simply for a product announcement. So it must be something related to legal/settlement/acquisition IMO.  But I could be totally wrong.

    I think they might be dropping Android in the US.

    Or Maybe even purchasing RIM.
