    HTC Gasping for Air; New Financial Results Reveal Worst Numbers in Three Years


    Hopefully that sound you hear coming from HTC isn't a death rattle. The once brief king of the Android world is now truly gasping for air in a continuously hostile environment. They just released their newest financial results and they are really terrible. In fact, the company hasn't made this little money in three years, (since February of 2010). Here's a quote with the particulars,

    The Taiwanese companyís reported revenue in February 2013 was a mere NT$11.37 billion, or approximately $384 million.

    Thatís a staggering 44 percent drop compared to February 2012, and a 26.8 percent drop month-over-month (as in, from January 2013).

    In fact, itís been exactly three years since HTCís monthly revenues were at this level. Last month, the company reported net income of NT$1 billion (roughly $34 million), the lowest profit it booked since 2004.
    All we can say is that as bad as it looks, we still don't think they have hit rock bottom yet. There is still time to turn things around. If they can aggressively market their new HTC One, it is an impressive enough device to help rebuild their reputation somewhat. One other thing might help them crawl out of their hole... listen to your customers and increase the size of your batteries!!!

    I don't know what makes a difference as far as sales......but I told my kids mother to get the EVO Design 4G on Boost. She used my Rezound for months..and complained about battery life.

    Same thing with the Design 4G.

    Now...she is gonna swap it for a Black Berry, LG Venice, or Kyocera. 1 blackberry, 2 Android phones. All 3 have a higher rated battery life. HTC really needs to address battery life.

    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    Crap! I forgot that part. Well then of course that wouldnt help as much

    And speaking of that, why are companies still making carrier specific phones? Seems dumb
