HTC evaluating Broadcom chips, working on Nvidia Tegra devices

HTC is known for having a fruitful collaboration with Qualcomm – most of HTC’s smartphones use Qualcomm chips.

However, the Taiwanese handset maker is apparently looking to add Broadcom to its list of 3.5G chipset suppliers.

According to DigiTimes, HTC may adopt Broadcom’s cost-effective dual-core CPU solutions. This move would allow the company to launch more mid to entry-level smartphones (like the HTC Touch2 and HTC Tattoo).

Taiwanese sources also note that HTC is already developing devices based on Nvidia Tegra and on 3.5G chips from ST-Ericsson – although there’s no word yet on when the first such device will be commercialized.

    Every since HTCClassAction.org noted how HTC/Qualcomm has been ripping off their customers by not shipping video drivers for their “new” Qualcomm cpu device solutions, HTC/Qualcomm's devices have been well disliked.

    Check the forum posts on wmpoweruser.com to get a good handle of how HTC/Qualcomm has fumbled 3 generations of devices that couldn't compete against devices years older in cpu and video performance because of Qualcomm. This is the single reason why the Omnia series has been superior.
