PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "HTC has just announced its unaudited results for the second quarter 2013, and they're not pretty. Despite launching a much-lauded flagship smartphone, the HTC One, the company made just NT$1.25 billion (roughly $41 million) after tax from NT$70.7 billion ($2.35 billion) revenue. In the same quarter last year, the company took in revenue of NT$91.04 billion ($3 billion) and made NT$7.40 billion ($246 million) profit." Make the best Android phone - and perhaps, the best phone period - and still not be out of hot water. And people still claim the smartphone market is not a one-to-one replica of the desktop market. Anywho, another victim of iceberg Apple and hurricane Samsung.

HTC can make a comeback

HTC has some good products but they keep shooting themselves in the foot with monumentally bad decisions. They'd be number one in no time at all if they did three things with their HTC One:

1) Allow the latest android releases. Not say they will and then when customers buy their product for a few months officially leave them stranded!

2) SD Card.

3) Replaceable batteries.

They can do step 1 now. The others need a new version of the phone. Should not take them long though...
