HTC buys Abaxia

HTC this morning announced it purchased French software company Abaxia, "specializing in mobile handset software solutions for network operators and handset manufacturers," according to its website.

That will beef  HTC's software side, no doubt, to go along with its purchase of design team One and Co., which first gained notoriety with the Windows Mobile Touch Diamond 2 and more recently with the new HTC Legend. We'll have to see if Abaxia's work makes it to Android in HTC's Sense user interface. [HTC]
