HTC “dropped the ball” on its 2011 devices, the company’s CFO has
admitted, with LTE-equipped handsets simply too thick and offering
insufficient battery life. Speaking on the company’s financial
results call today, following HTC’s unappealing Q4 2011 results,
Chief Financial Officer Winston Yung conceded that HTC had plenty
of work to do improving both “design and components.”
I, for one, am shocked — shocked! — that big thick phones with poor battery life fared poorly.
