please re read what im saying. im not saying android specifically is their problem. what im suggesting is, since windows phone is so small currently, they can push the reset button,and build up their brand and reputation on a totally new up and coming platform.
Not working to well for Nokia. Why should HTC go WP, which isnt doing so well and hasnt proven themselves, from a successful platform like android. And a platform that served them well in the past. And other android OEMs are profitting from Android. Not at the scale of Samsung, but there are profits to be made if things are done right. WP has potential and is a good OS, but it is not there yet and companies are still weary of it. Which is odd since Microsoft has the potential to make WP explode, but has not done so yet and has a great OEM supporting them.
I don't think giving better support for their phones and making less devices is going to magically shift the tides and undo everything that's happened. they put out their best effort in the htc one,which they got a lot of praise for from the tech community and bloggers. If this fails to move the markers, then there is no hope. Id like to know what do you suggest they do then?
Didnt say it would magically fix their problems. But less devices, and better support would go a long way to improve things for HTC. Lack of support is the number one complaint on the Android platform. If they come out and start releasing updates fast, then it will help them a lot. And less devices means less phones to support/update and would make things easier. This is common sense and Samsung used to be like this but now, they release a new device every day it seems. And issues like HTC are starting to show in Samsung. And its obvious that some people put in charge of decision making need to be cycled out and replaced.
I am not a business man...thats not what I do. This is just my opinion and what I have seen and what many others have commented on.
