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.

since astroturfing is not part of my earning strategies, I'll make this one quick.

Its nice that you claim that Windows Phone has 4% of the market and try to use that as a stick to beat WP with

Yeah, how dare reality and actual data to be biased against your own particular narrative... the gall! At the end of the day, nokia has to compete for 4% of market share against Samsung and HTC. I fail to see how that can be spun as being a much better business proposition than having to compete against Samsung and HTC for over 50% of the market.

And yes you can simply ignore the catastrophic collapse in market share brought by the transition to WP, while at the same time heralding overall meager market gains as the second coming of Jesus. I guess hitting rock bottom could be spun as a "triumph against gravity" in some circles.

Re nokia's financial information; we already went through some of these figures when we discussed in another thread nokia's financial health by going through their actual financial results.

Finally, just because HTC is failing does not imply nokia is doing better or that they have a better strategy by some kind of magic dichotomy.
