I posted about HTC yesterday and the below article sheds a little more light on some of the struggles faced by the Taiwanese manufacturer.
Hurdles include the popularity of Samsungs handsets and in part of course the iCrap devices, slowing smartphone sales, falling behind technologies such as screen quality and battery sizes and a drop in consumer spennding. HTC is also working on entering the Chinese market, which ironically it has not had much presence in due to it’s high end moniker.
HTC certainly has some work ahead but still continues to offer great value and quality constructed phones. It remains to be seen what the next generation due out next yeart bring but knowing HTC it’ll be high quality and rock solid.
