I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. You know, I’ve always noticed when your the best, everyone wants to bring you down. It’s like HTC makes the OG EVO and everyone that didn’t already love HTC fell in love with their products.
    While HTC has been present and well-known in the industry by most Android fans, that time was just beginning of Androids major growth in market awareness. Now that they have established themselves with multiple handsets and contenders throughout the market with a Too 3 awareness everyone wants to bring them down. HTC isn’t going anywhere and Beats was a good move for future cell phone tech.

    1. agreed. i dont think ive ever used a product from HTC that i havent liked.

      and yeah, the Beats deal was definitely a great move.

  2. The guy is an obvious Apple fanboy. What HTC has done over the past year contradicts everything he’s claiming. Numbers don’t lie. If they continue to put out quality phones, which I don’t see why they wouldn’t, they will be successful.

  3. Yea…I dont see how HTC is in trouble…

  4. I agree, as i wrote on that other site, it sounds like the whining of an apple fanboy “carriers that couldnt offer their customers the iphone”. As if they were forced to get a lowly tmobile phone, god forbid. Then he goes on to sing the praises of samsuck. Sorry i know there are lots of u that love samsuck, but my experience with them and that comes from tons of research, is that they make phones that have multiple hardware and software problems, and that will forever sour my opinion of their mobile phone department. I think they should stick to what theyre good at , making great televisions. The stock graph, he said proves HTC is sinking, but isnt that happening to everyone ? look at the NY stock exchange the last week. plus the falling stock prices could easily be the panic over the whole patent battle. their stock price will more than likely rebound or even go higher, especially if its announced that they will make the next NEXUS. HTC is the only handset maker i will ever purchase from….my first HTC was the G1 and now ive since moved to the G2, my next purchase will hopefully be the G3, which will hopefully coincide with the end of my current contract which will be in the fall of 2012. HTC is here to stay, apple will soon go away!

  5. That “HTC is in trouble” blog is worse than Florian Mueller’s pro-MS drivel. Keep writing articles with the hope that things become true because you shout loudly enough.
