HTC experienced an increase in sales by more than 20 percent in November, with the smartphone maker generating $730 million.
The figure represents an increase of 23.3 percent when compared to the revenue generated during October.
The Taiwanese company has launched a number of handsets during the latter stages of 2012, including the One X+, 8X, 8S and Droid DNA.
However, despite a strong November in the market, HTC is still considerably down on revenue in 2012 when compared to the previous year. Total revenue for the year is still down by 39 percent compared to the same time last year.
Looking forward, recent reports have suggested that HTC is planning to release a new flagship smartphone during the first quarter of 2013 in the form of the M7. The device is said to boast a 5-inch HD display, a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core processor and a 13 megapixel camera.
I've never understood why people complain about not getting a Android update, I root every Android phone I have and keep them all up to date. Also, if you are in the states I recommend you blame your phone carrier, not the manufacturer.
OT: I believe HTC made a lot of money because they decided to go the SIM based route for their Butterfly(Verizon's DNA). I have T-Mobile as my carrier and I bought a Droid DNA from Verizon and so far haven't regretted anything! Amazing phone, amazing features and so much possibilities for future custom ROMs! Also scoring a 8,300 on Quadrant ;D
Keep up the good work HTC! Been using a HTC HD2 for years now, finally decided to settle down on a new phone(:
My Galaxy Nexus already takes better photos than my HP 2MP camera.
Why own a camera if you can gets a phone that can do the job adequately?
Anyway HTC Australia put me through the ringer on a warranty issue. Costing themselves $1100 according to the warranty slips. 3 different motherboards installed when all they had to do was replace the phone.In total I went 3.5 months without my smart phone. It is my first smart phone and when I got it I was an annoying HTC fan boy, proclaiming they were gold to the world. I don't REALLY want them to sink ONLY because I think of so many people's lives and their families would be up rooted due to job loss. However they suck bum bum and will NEVER get my money again.
What else do they make?
1. Rooting voids warranty, hence why some people complain.
2. Rooting, the overhead of learning, applying all the changes takes time, no reason I shouldn't get an update, make a few taps, walk away come back and its done. I should not have to waste my time to do something that should be provided
3. Companies like Apple and Microsoft help push updates to their devices, they try to cut the B.S. from the carriers.
All the reasons above + more is why I go with an iPhone for the time being. I rather spend my time learning new skills for my profession not waste time hacking my device to get updates that another device makes it seamless
