ongoing effort to support today's increasingly mobile workforce,  Siemens
Enterprise Communications  and HTC Corporation today announced a strategic
global partnership to make it easier for enterprises to embrace mobile unified
communications (UC) on HTC enterprise-enabled devices. This partnership makes it

Communications' OpenScape Mobile and OpenScape Web Collaboration solutions.

Collaboration solutions will be validated on select HTC devices to increase
users' confidence that their chosen device will work seamlessly with their
mobile communication tools  
* Siemens Enterprise Communications customers will have a simplified process to
secure validated HTCpro devices supporting Siemens Enterprise Communications
solutions  
* Siemens Enterprise Communications and HTC will collaborate to simplify
deployment of mobile UC through joint marketing and fulfillment efforts  
* This collaboration will take place through HTCpro, a program that provides
mobile solutions for companies and their employees and ensures that HTC's entire
portfolio is business-ready

Communications
