There are some rumors going around that HTC could acquire a subscription-based streaming music service called MOG that, if true, could cement the Taiwanese-titan's position as the go-to company not only for handsets with great audio quality but also for content---songs, to be exact. This move would also be good for HTC's 50% stake in Beats Audio, the company that makes the seen-everywhere Beats by Dre brand.
Incidentally, the other half of Beats Audio is owned by music industry big shot Jimmy Iovine, head of Interscope Records who you might've seen lately become a coach on American Idol. If the rumors are true, HTC won't have any trouble getting music (or music connections, for that matter) any time soon.
We checked out MOG's website and saw this:
We're bummed that we couldn't try their services yet but their site says that you can listen to music for free, so HTC could have plans to acquire MOG and incorporate it into their Beats brand and devices. Either way, it looks like it's going to be a win-win situation for HTC owners.
