HTC buys a US based cloud service provider, expect document sync on the air in future.
HTC may be getting ready to debut their own Cloud service as they have bought Dashwire, a Seattle-based company which builds back up, remote access and device syncing. Their technology allows consumers to share documents, music, video and images between PCs, Macs and Android devices. But thats not all Dashwire’s software can also sync a whole lot of other phone specific data including contacts, messages, calendars and voicemail.
HTC was already planning something like this with HTCsense.com but now they will have fully developed technology to take on Apple’s iCloud arrival. One of the things that make it more attractive than iCloud is that Apple’s technology will be limited to iOS. While HTC may develop the tech uniform to their Android as well as Windows Phone 7 devices. But being under HTC ownership means that this technology will be limited to HTC handsets only; Unless Google launches their own Google Cloud Drive sometime in the future.
