HTC to manufacture Windows Mobile-based Treo 670 for Palm

As the always well informed DigiTimes reports, Palm is likely to outsource the production of its next generation of Treo-series Smartphones (the Treo 670 which is expected to be the first Windows Mobile-based Treo device recently made its way to the Internet), built using Microsoft's operating system,

to Taiwanese HTC (High Tech Computer, also OEM of all T-Mobile, O2 and Orange Windows Mobile devices as well as ODM of most HP iPAs), with volume shipments to begin in the first quarter of next year, according to an August 10 report from the Chinese-language Commercial Times.

HTC will manufacture the new Treo Smartphones on an ODM basis, instead of the OEM contract the company received from Palm for the production of the current Palm-based Treo 650 smartphones.

For sure, HTC declined to comment on the report, citing client confidentiality.
