True.

But you have to remember that Samsung had huge vertical integration advantages. It also is a major supplier to all its competitors, so they can afford brute force their strategy at very little risk.

It is probably the most vertically integrated phone (everything else too?) manufacturer at the moment.

Erm...

Htc is not developing their own operating system beside android and WP7. Also they don't produce dumbphones, nor are the 2nd largest phone manufacturer after Nokia.

But I imagine they have plenty of advantages being in taiwan (manufacturing deals etc).

What else is there to say?
