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.

Why does everyone act like Nokia and HTC are the only alternatives to Applesung? LG and Sony are the most likely to be real competitors. Just because they don't use aluminum doesn't mean they have nothing to offer.

I find LG and Sony untrustworthy. I still have hate for sony because they wanted to screw their customers with special memory cards, cables and formats. Also destroying the meaning of walkman.
I had a HTC Desire and loved it until HTC gave me the middle finger by not updating it. My friend has it now and it runs Android 4.2.2 so screw you HTC! That is why I absolutely did not want another HTC and went for Galaxy Nexus. I think that that was a huge reason why they are losing marketshare.

The desire was released with 2.1 and they did update it to 2.2 and 2.3. Honestly the desire has so little internal storage that newer versions are difficult to get running without resorting to hacks like a2sd.

If you keep of the crap that HTC puts in you have more storage with 4.2.2. And I thought HTC stopped at 2.2. Maybe 2.3 came 2 years after it was released on Nexus One.
