HTC apply for trademark Fetch to help users track valuables

Fetch_MAIN
HTC recently applied for the “Fetch” trademark, describing it as a

“portable multifunction electronic tracking device for assistance in locating mobile phones, smartphones, cellular phones, portable computers, tablet computers and personal digital assistants and wireless handheld digital”

From that description we would think that HTC are possibly looking at a small, tag like device that can be easily attached to different objects, helping users track their valuables.

We assume the Fetch has some sensors inside (GPS etc) as well as a Bluetooth radio to communicate with smartphones and tablets. Hopefully it will incorporate either software for your laptop/desktop or a link to an HTC web page. But that’s just a speculation at this point and we’ll rather have to wait and see what Taiwanese company is working on.

Similar tagging devices have are still being used today with some PC/Smartphone magazines offering them free when you buy their mag on subscription. Perhaps HTC’s brand could help bring these tags to the mainstream users; perhaps not. We will see…
