HTC Profits Plummet 70%

HTC's profits have taken a beating. The company has announced a 70% drop in Q1 profit thanks to intense competition from Apple and Samsung in the smartphone realm. It has been a while since HTC had a significantly popular smartphone or tablet to lure in consumers.

HTC is relying on its HTC One series of devices with improved cameras and better music experience to woo consumers. I certainly don't see that helping to a large extent, a smartphone lives and dies by the hardware and the user experience and that is where HTC is lacking.

First up is its look and feel. While it isn’t actually made of metal, t ...
