HTC buys Diamond design firm

Taiwanese handset manufacturer HTC has beefed up its creative skills with the acquisition of the San Francisco design firm responsible for the Touch Diamond.

HTC, which is making a name for itself as a successful white label handset manufacturer as well as a growing brand in its own right, announced the acquisition of lifestyle design firm One & Company Design on Wednesday.

The Taiwanese vendor’s first collaboration with One & Co was over the design of the successful Touch Diamond. Released in May of this year, HTC recently upped its forecasts from 2 million Diamonds shipped to 3 million by year end.

One & Co said it will maintain its name and client base while it joins forces with HTC. The company also counts Apple, Microsoft, Palm and Motorola among its clients.
