HTC Smartpones, Tablets Will Offer Polycom RealPresence Video Conferencing

At Mobile World Congress in Bareclona, Spain, HTC and Polycom announced that select HTC devices will be certified Polycom-ready and optimized for RealPresence Mobile, which is expected to be available for download via the Android Market this year.

Polycom, a specialist in standards-based unified communications (UC), and smartphone maker HTC are collaborating to enable Polycom RealPresence Mobile on select HTC smartphones and tablets in mid-2012. The effort was announced this week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. RealPresence Mobile, powered by the company's RealPresence Platform, is a secure, enterprise-grade video software solution for mobile devices that extends the reach of video collaboration beyond the conference room, allowing users on the go with a mobile device to connect with other standards-based video systems including immersive video rooms, group/desktop systems, laptops, tablets and smartphones in high-definition quality. All elements of the RealPresence Platform are currently available through Polycom's certified channel partners.

The announcement continues Polycom's initiative to make video collaboration ubiquitous by delivering user-friendly, standards-based software to anyone, across any environment. Polycom announced RealPresence Mobile for tablets in October 2011, and at Mobile World Congress this week, announced RealPresence Mobile is now also available for smartphones.
