HTC is the manufacturer of well known such devices as the SPV line of Smartphones and iPaq line of Pocket PCs. IA Style is the maker of top notch software such as IA Caller ID, IA Album, IA Utility Pack, IA File Manager Pack, and IA SIM Manager. This move should give HTC a leg up on the competition as more manufacturers get into this market. It's quite likely that all future devices from HTC will come bundled with a library of software from IA Style in ROM or on a CD. This will hopefully provide the developers at IA Style with an improved and constant supply of resources so they can continue pumping out such great apps.
