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.

RE[2]: They are also to blame

Honestly, I think HTC are putting out the nicest handsets of all the Android manufacturers. Samsung devices feel cheaper (I really don't like the lighter, plastic feel of the S3 - though I will concede I've not held the S4) and TouchWiz just annoys me immensely.

I still have a year left on my contract, but I'm aching to buy the latest HTC since the announcement that it'll run stock Android (and I'm sure cyanogenmod will follow shortly off the back of that)
