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.

And the fact they barely have a presense in the low end and midrange sector

Now their low/midrange phones really suck in comparison. Less RAM, slower CPU, low-res screen, terrible camera, and HTC's typical appearance.

Their sale strategy is clearly faulty. Nobody likes cheap android phone because it'd be too slow to be usable and you can always get very good phones such as S3 mini or Xperia V for FREE by 2 years contract. What they need to offer are the flagship phones, and the best phones which people can afford without actually paying any dollar for the phone itself.
