HTC is developing a smartwatch that uses Google’s Android software and can take pictures, according to a person familiar with the matter. Cost, functions and sales strategy for the watch are still to be decided before it’s released by the second half of 2014, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. Chairwoman Cher Wang gathered workers at a town-hall style meeting today to tell them the Taiwanese smartphone maker needs to improve its customer focus, Chief Marketing Officer Ben Ho said in an interview. Dwindling market share for HTC smartphones led to the company’s first quarterly loss and a 54 percent slump in its share price this year as it loses ground to Samsung, the world’s biggest producer. The smartwatch will join a growing segment of wearable technology that already includes devices from Samsung and Sony.
