This spring cleaning will take place to make way for an overhaul of the current cloud service, though there has been no indication from HTC as to what the service will look like after this maintenance is complete. HTC has invested heavily in a range of digital content streaming service recently, so it could be that will soon be a new hub for music, movies and video games.
