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.

is run by idiots.

This whole stupid how idea about how thin you can make a cell phone crap I could care less about.

The technology is fine for a nice thin phone if you want one PLUS a removable battery.

For some of us that write our own phone software it is nice to have a bigger battery because phones now days do way the heck more than talking and texting.

But, no way does it sit right by me that I have to be without my phone simply because the battery fails when CLEARLY this is so you are forced to buy more than one of the phones or a backup phone.

The battery is only $22 dollars for my Galaxy S3. I am not buying another 700 dollar phone and be without just for a $22 dollar part.

Until HTC builds a phone with a removable battery they can pound sand and be buried by it.

I won't by a phone from HTC ever.

PS: Quiz: What was the most popular phone ever by HTC and did it have a removable battery? BINGO the EVO and ever since the company has gone down HILL.
