HTC Said to Plan Smartwatch as Wang Rallies Workers

HTC Corp. is developing a smartwatch that uses Google Inc.’s Android software and can take pictures, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Cost, functions and sales strategy for the watch are still to be decided before it’s released by the second half of 2014, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. Chairwoman Cher Wang gathered workers at a town-hall style meeting today to tell them the Taiwanese smartphone maker needs to improve its customer focus, Chief Marketing Officer Ben Ho said in an interview.
