HTC’s downfall is a lose for consumers →

May 8th, 2012

HTC was doing great, but isn’t anymore.

They tried to make their devices more open, and it looks like the carriers’ sales-strength caused HTC’s profits to dwindle. The result is HTC starting to lock up their devices again.

It’s sad that carriers have more strength than consumers, and that consumers don’t care about openness enough to encourage it (even though that’s pretty hypocritical coming from an iPhone owner).

A big reason I have an iPhone, is because I trust Apple more than any mobile carrier. And no other phone maker has the power to serve the consumer.
