I said a year ago that within two years htc will have to merge with someone if they plan on surviving much longer and as of now I still feel the same way.  It would be nice if google can come in and buy them out which is unlikely but would be nice.

I kind of want Google to scoop them up and make them the nexus creators from now on with an occasional flagship here and there. I don't want ZTE or another one of those lowly operators to pick them up. HTC has more presence in the states than ZTE.

Not really sure where google would have a need for HTC after it bought out Motorola.

well if HTC goes Chinese then I am definitely going either Samsung or Nexus

While I am usually anti chinese, a buyout from Lenovo could be perfect. Remember, Lenovo produced laptops for IBM for years before buying out the unit. Lenovo could enable HTC to move beyond cell phones and tablets.

Yeah, at this point I am afraid that there isn't anything htc can do to stop the bleeding.  Obviously they have a lot of internal issues that has cost them quite a bit over the years.  I am still keeping my fingers crossed that they will be able come up with a miracle to get themselves out of the whole they dug themselves in.

Definitely. I can't stand to see them losing to Samsung. It disappoints me because I see HTC as having the better product. Samsung really stole the show with the GS3 last year and as a result, they cab push out anything and people will love it, similar to the iPhone! Samsung's followers are getting to be worst than Apple's.

I really hope this doesn't happen.  I wish HTC would have realized that there marketing sucked, naming schemes are jacked and piss poor advertising surely are a large factor.  Day one with my One at work I was told by a coworker that AT&T had the one for free, they were talking about one of last years models.  Another coworker asked me if I used facebook so much that I needed the facebook phone (HTC First.)  I am the only person I know locally that even has a One, and I think that is due to marketing.

 

Motorola I need you to release some bad ass phones for a carrier other than VZW if this happens.

I do find their naming scheme very strange. Especially when they released the One X last year, and this years flagship is the ONE. It's just very strange, considering they wanted to undo their mistake with the One X and all it's variants. They should have gone with another name, helps differentiate the lines. It ultimately confuses people, the ONE, One X, One S, One V, etc,.

 

Also I would like to see more Moto on other carriers too.

I think you're going to get your wish since the Moto X is on the big four.

Moar rumors:

Probably the best case scenario for HTC, unless they have some huge rally.

This doesn't seem that bad. Then again I really like Lenovo, it could be worse right?

At this point, I don't think anyone should be surprised.  HTC may slow the bleeding but I just don't see how they can stop the bleeding all together without someone coming in to bail them out.  HTC's products are fine they just need the capital to grow as well as a change in management which I am sure lenovo will provide and I think they will be doing just fine in a few years.

Absolutely it could be worse, and since Lenovo has no Smartphone presence in NA it would be wise for them to keep the HTC name.

I hope so, I'd hate to lose a player in the Smartphone industry.

Lenovo did really good at preserving the quality of Thinkpad when it bought the PC business from IBM. If I know someone who wants a Windows PC, Lenovo is pretty much the one I recommend, and that didn't change any from when they bought that business from IBM.

Yes but the Republic of China and the People's Republic of China are entirely separate. Republic of China started in 1912 and encompassed all of China and Taiwan, ending its rein after WWII when it was pushed back into Taiwan by the communists during the Chinese civil war. Therefore Taiwan - nationalist, mainland China - communist. And China is apparently foolish enough to enter an armed conflict in trying to retake it even though its considered a sovereign separate country.

You do know that HTC is based in Taiwan,  the Republic of China . . . right?

LOL, it really depends on who you ask.   You will either get a yes or no with various explanations as to why its yes or no.

Yep, part of China.

Just how Scotland is part of the UK.

    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
    • From a few days back: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/deutsche-telekom-aims-50-t-mobile-ownership-2024 DT Chief Executive Timotheus Hoettgas said buying the majority stake in T-Mobile US was the group's most important strategic project at present, according to Reuters. He said that stake should top 50% much sooner than its previous projection of 2024. Earlier this year, DT paid $2.4 billion to SoftBank Group to increase its stake in T-Mobile US to 48.4%.
    • 5.9GHz finally approved by a court: https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/court-upholds-fccs-decision-59-ghz.  This should be added to 5GHz wi-fi.  considering wi-fi 7 will be included in the qualcomm x70 and related SOCs, doubtful they will be able to add this now, unless designed to be added later.  5.9GHz will given us a third 160MHz unique carrier iirc, a major improvement.
    • waiting for about 400 with demand > supply, or 95% to look again in some detail.  Until then : https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
