PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The Verge has learned that HTC's Chief Product Officer, Kouji Kodera, left the company last week. Kodera was responsible for HTC's overall product strategy, which makes the departure especially notable on the heels of the global launch of the make-or-break One. It's not just Kodera. In the past three-odd months, HTC has lost a number of employees in rapid succession." I really hope HTC pulls it together.

Windows Phone isn't really going to help HTC. Nokia owns Windows Phone entirely (something like 80% of the WP phones are Nokia) for a good reason, they have put the commitment and effort where it counts.

The ultimate reason for Samsung's domination now, is probably due to the same early efforts and commitments Samsung had with Android.

HTC option now is to simply stay a-float and wait for the market shift its focus...

Nokia owns that large part of Windows Phone ecosystem because of their commitment. If you read the news about Windows Phone, I think 90% of the time you will find Nokia working on some exclusive apps on their products. Samsung and HTC do similar thing but not as frequent as Nokia does. I like HTC 8X but at the end I decided to go with Lumia 920, why? Because Nokia is willing to work and improve their products; Samsung/ HTC simply sell you the phone and do nothing. Even if Samsung/ HTC don't want to make exclusive apps on their own, why can't they sign deals with app makers to offer exclusive experiences on their phone?
