Partnership Between Giant and HTC

Two well known Taiwanese companies, the smart phone manufacturer HTC Corp. and Giant Manufacturing have joined forces to develop high-end electronic-assisted bicycles that will turn a HTC smartphone into a multimedia trip computer.

“The new e-bike will allow a rider to use navigation functions like global positioning system (GPS) and to monitor heart rate through HTC’s handheld devices”, said Giant spokesman Jeffrey Sheu.

“HTC is a successful smartphone maker and has an outstanding technology capability in the field. We expect to combine such a high-tech brand with the traditional manufacturing sector to make smart bicycles of the future.”

According to Sheu Giant and HTC began discussing on the collaboration in early July, but he could not reveal further details due to a confidentiality agreement signed between the two Taiwanese companies.
