I would disagree with that.
A 20% year-over-year drop over two months, especially during the holiday season, says very bad things. The situation isn’t a burning platform, but HTC is not on the Queen Mary, either. A lot needs to be done.
Samsung was lucky to gain traction and record profits. While there may be room for HTC to do just as Samsung did, streamlining needs to occur.
The success of Samsung comes primarily from its Galaxy line, not from the plethora of phones that are not Galaxy devices. HTC doesn’t have the recognition that “Galaxy” does.
More quality. Fewer devices.
