HTC was formed in 1997, and although it began as a design manufacturer and original equipment manufacturer, the Taiwanese consumer electronics company now specialise in consumer electronics.
Initially, HTC started out making smartphones on Windows Mobile, however, in around 2007, the company moved to Android mobiles after they became part of the 'Open Handset Alliance.' In other areas, HTC have ventured into the 'virtual reality' industry with hardware of headsets. Their brand has been associated with the 'Kings XL Punjab' cricket team (who play in the Indian Premier League) and they have been on the list of sponsors for both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa league in football.
In 2014, Google requested that HTC make the Nexus 9 Tablet, as they have previous experience in this area. Other tablets include the HTC Flyer, the HTC Jetstream and the HTC EVO View 4G. The tablet industry is one which is highly competitive, as consumers demand the most highly-technical products at the lowest possible price. The technology frequently evolves and devices such as the Nexus 9 Tablet are quickly outdated as consumers replace them with newer devices.
Replacing them, however, is not cheap. It can be very difficult for consumers to keep up with the latest devices, as they are often updated every year. One way in which to do this, however, is by selling your old HTC tablet for cash, so that you can fund the purchase of the next model. OnRecycle are here to help you do just that.

One of the key suggestions that we make is to ensure your recycler is reputable.

The higher the star rating, the lower the number of complaints they have received.
It is also highly likely that price will be a factor in who you choose to sell to. The 'price' field can be sorted so that the buyer offering you the highest price appears first; click on the arrow next to the 'price' text and the data will rearrange itself. Other fields next to that column inform you how payment will be made, and how quickly. Take the time to weigh up the different recyclers, and try to get a feel for the one you want to do business with.
