Is mobile maker HTC planning its own streaming music service? Well, any mobile company that doesn’t currently offer a bespoke or badged white label music service is regularly rumoured to have such a thing in development, though Gizmodo says that HTC really is working on its own music offer, seemingly in partnership with Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine’s Beats Audio company, in which the Taiwanese technology firm took a stake last year.

Presumably Interscope boss Iovine could smooth over at least one major label licence for any HTC music service, should the company choose to licence direct rather than piggy backing on someone else’s digital catalogue.
