It's a strategy... Read more...

HTC is struggling; despite better second quarter numbers and profit (about $41.63 million USD, as opposed to last quarter’s $2.8 million USD), fueled in part by sales of the HTC One handset, the company failed to meet forecasts.

In its annual report, HTC revealed an interesting factoid: Its high-level executives took a huge pay cut, to the tune of about 51%, after disappointing performance in 2012. Indeed, 2012 was a rough one for HTC, as the company saw a declining market share and low earnings after a good 2011; according to the WSJ, the... Read more...
If you were to wave a magic wand over the HTC One and magically give it a bigger screen, faster processor, and a longer lasting battery, you'd end up with the Butterfly S, HTC's latest high-end handset. Oh, and then you'd have to banish it Taiwan, where it would be start selling July for NT$22,900 (~$769 USD). A magic... Read more...
While the HTC One was built to compete directly with the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the iPhone 5, and now that the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and a smaller, cheaper iPhone are in the works, HTC is set to release a mini version of its own.

It's perhaps the ultimate Catch 22. HTC needs to expand into more frontiers beyond the smartphone one in order to generate more revenue. But it lacks the revenue to expand into new product segments. Years back, HTC actually tried its hand at a tablet. While the device did well in reviews, hardly anyone actually... Read more...
Times are tough all around these days, but shop wisely, and you can stretch a dollar into a double cheeseburger from McDonald's, a song on iTunes, or any number of items from your local dollar store. You can even buy the HTC First, otherwise known as the Facebook phone, with a dollar bill and have a shiny copper penny... Read more...
HTC has seen better days in terms of revenue and relevancy, but it would be a mistake to count the handset maker down and out in the mobile ring. Just ask Samsung, which feels so threatened by HTC that it reportedly resorted to hiring students to leave bad reviews for HTC devices, an underhanded tactic it has since apologized for. The HTC...

Mark Zuckerberg took the stage at Facebook’s Menlo Park headquarters to announce Home, which as expected is not a new piece of hardware nor a completely new operating system, but a deep Facebook integration with Android that goes beyond what an app can do. Zuck put it in a nutshell by saying that instead of... Read more...
To compete in the fierce smartphone market, you have to have an excellent handset as well as strong partners all along the supply chain. It sure looks like the HTC One will be a terrific phone, but it looks like there are big problems with HTC’s suppliers. Two premiere features of the HTC One are its UltraPixel camera (which boasts smart... Read more...
It's a subtle movement, but an important one. Americans are slowly but surely growing tired of the same 'ole politics involving conventional two-year mobile contracts.
