By utilizing our state of the art logistics and infrastructure, we believe we can shorten HTC’s time to market, satisfy demand and quicken turnaround time by providing significant vendor support to its partner distribution channels.” 

The deal will establish Brightstar Europe as the master distribution partner of accessories in Europe for HTC’s leading phones such as the HTC Hero, Tattoo and the newly launched HD2. The partnership will commence in Q1 2010.
