Apple Vs. Samsung HTC

Apple looks poised to run over Samsung and HTC this fall

Apple looks poised to run over Samsung and HTC this fall

The new comScore report on U.S. smartphone subscriber market share has one major surprise: Apple managed to increase its American market share to 42.1% in June from 41.4% in March. This is fairly astonishing considering it has been nearly a year since Apple rolled out new models but particularly since Samsung launched its brand-new Galaxy S5 in April and HTC rolled out its much ballyhooed One (M8) in March. So two leading Android vendors debuted their well-received flagship models during the spring… and Apple’s American market share still inched up another notch. More →

HTC still hasn’t stopped the bleeding

From a sales standpoint, HTC’s revenue continues to shrink despite the fact that its flagship smartphones earn widespread praise every year as some of the best in the world. More →

Did HTC just leak its unannounced smartwatch in a new video?

Wearable tech hasn’t quite taken off like many analysts expected it to, but Android Wear could be the beginning of something big. Samsung and LG have already thrown their hats in the ring with the Gear Live and the G Watch, and Motorola hopes to blow everyone away with the gorgeous Moto 360 later this summer, but many of the biggest names in mobile electronics haven’t revealed their plans yet.

Check out this Nexus 8 concept with Google’s gorgeous Material Design

Google has yet to unveil new Nexus hardware this year, but at least the company confirmed at I/O 2014 that it doesn’t plan to cancel its Nexus line of devices, as some reports suggested. Before the conference, Google code sightings revealed an unreleased HTC Volantis tablet. Furthermore, an image published by Google during the developers event may have possibly shown the HTC Nexus tablet that was detailed in previous reports.

YouTube channel My Gadgetic has put together a quick concept video for an HTC Nexus 8 tablet running Android L. The device seems to be inspired by the tablet Google used in its Material Design images posted at the developers conference, featuring a slim design with square corners and stereo speakers with BoomSound.

Motorola’s astonishing low-end success is a grim warning for HTC and Samsung

It’s been a dim couple of years for Motorola, a company that has had badly misfiring high-end smartphone strategy. Just two months ago, the company decided to shut down its vaunted U.S. manufacturing plant in Texas. Google grew tired of the issues last January, offloading Motorola to Chinese electronics giant Lenovo, and many questioned what Lenovo could possibly gain by buying the old warhorse.

HTC Earnings Q2 2014

HTC returns to profit in Q2 as steep climb begins

HTC returns to profit in Q2 as steep climb begins

Thanks in part to sales of its flagship HTC One (M8) smartphone, HTC has delivered on its promise and returned to profit in the second quarter. The struggling handset maker on Thursday reported preliminary unaudited financial results for the June quarter, noting a narrow $75 million profit on revenue totalling just under $2.2 billion. The good news is that the company finally managed to return to a profit, but the bad news is that revenue is still sliding. In other words, sales are still sputtering but HTC’s recent cost-cutting measures have had a clear impact.
