The Google HTC Deal –
So this is an official news, previous week some of the news started leaking that whether Google would be acquiring HTC as a whole company like what they did with Motorola in 2012, but it turned out completely different sort of like what Microsoft did with Nokia and all the Lumia series smartphones. Google paid 1.1 billion$ to HTC in order to hire all the employees that were present in the Original Pixel smartphone development project.
That amount of fund would be beneficial to the Taiwanese company HTC as already it is a sinking ship and that amount of money would help them to spend more on the Marketing, R&D and other stuff.
