SEATTLE, Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dashwire, a wholly-owned subsidiary of HTC Corporation, announced today that it has been re-launched to offer mobile operators software solutions that simplify the smartphone user experience.  Dashwire's technology has made it easier for millions of consumers to set up, personalize and use their new smartphones across leading Android device brands.

"Dashwire has proven its ability to deliver innovative software solutions on a large scale," said Fred Liu, president of engineering & operations at HTC. "We look forward to supporting Dashwire's efforts to implement their charter with operator and OEM partners worldwide, which we believe will ultimately benefit the entire mobile device ecosystem, including HTC and our shareholders."
