Digitimes is reporting that HTC (High Tech Computer) subsidiary, Dopod, has announced plans to launch 6 new mobile devices in China for the second half (2H) of this year. One device is being described as a “mobile office device,” which we’re taking to mean that one of the mobile phones in the pipeline will be billed as an enterprise device. Company sources are saying that the new lineup will be marketed solely under the Dopod brand, with names like Athena-c (enterprise device), Cruiser, Kunlun, Nike-c, Elf and Sedna-c.
Dopod International has also appointed Paul Hsu as David Lee’s replacement as president of Dopod.
The proposed lineup seems to include current HTC offerings, repackaged as Dopod devices for the Chinese market. (Athena-c seems to be the HTC Athena, rebranded for the Chinese market).
