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.

Agreed. As long as other companies will give the users what they want (sd card, removable batteries, updates), HTC will fail if they don't address these issues.

It's not only us technophiles, my father likes having a replaceable battery, my wife, my father, my mom like having a sdcard for cheap storage of music and photos.

They don't care however about the os updates so much as long as their apps work.
