HTC sees negative smartphone sales trend reversing thanks to HTC One phones

HTC is confident the company’s new One series smartphones will rescue the company from slowing sales, propelling it to the No.5 smartphone vendor spot and beyond. “We are confident this year will be … a much better year,” HTC’s chief of European operations Florian Seiche said to Reuters. “Even with the Q1 not being the ideal fast start right out of the gate in January, which of course we would have preferred, even with that we are very confident.” During the company’s Mobile World Congress 2012 press event, the Taiwanese smartphone maker announced the HTC One series. The first three HTC One phones focus on three main pillars, amazing design and user experience, an amazing camera, and an amazing multimedia experience. HTC feels these key components will combine to reignite consumer interest in its smartphones, and early response has been very positive. More →
