HTC (formerly High Tech Computer Corporation) is a Taiwan based smartphone manufacturing company established in 1997. Since then it has produceda number of models including HTC-Hero and the recent one HTC Droid Eris. HTC has grown dramatically since it has been chosen by Microsoft as a hardware platform development partner. It uses Android Operating System in its most of the models.
Android is a popular name in the world of mobile phones. It is moreover a software stack that includes Operating System, Middleware, and key Applications. The applications are JAVA based Object Oriented Applications running on a Dalvik Virtual machine. The features included range from traditional i.e. Bluetooth, Media support (MPEG4, H.264, AAC, AMR, GIF etc) to modern i.e. WiFi, EDGE, 3G GPS and Accelerometer. Since it is Java based system, the applications run in their own process with their own instance of the Dalvik Virtual machine. It also helps the device to run multiple VMs (Virtual machine).
Android Eris is the new product after HTC-Hero from HTC. It is said to be a solid Alternative to the Motorola Droid. It actually uses the slick Sense User-interface which is a lot more aesthetically appealing than the previous one.
