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: 

http://www.androidbeat.com/2013/10/rumor-lenovo-htc-acquisition-talks-since-late-august/

 

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.

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

      What are everyone's thought on the HTC U 12+?

      With Todays announcement that T-Mobile and Sprint are merging, and the announcement of the T-Mobile Sprint Roaming deal that will survive and will last for four years regardless if the merger is completed or not, which is effect immediately as stated in the conference call and the slides made available. So I thought I'd create this to see if anyone has been able to use their Sprint device on T-Mobile roaming yet. And of course if not, once you do, come back here and say you have. Personally I'm not bothering with anything until after the coverage map is updated again, hopefully to reflect the T-Mobile roaming. And of course if you are able to roam onto T-Mobile what kind of speeds are you pulling, and on what device.
      Also for those that are unaware, the T-Mobile Sprint Roaming agreement that was announced as part of todays merger announcement is a roaming agreement for Sprint customers to roam onto T-Mobile for 4 years and takes affect immediately, yes right now, regardless if the merger completes or not. Surely it's a stepping stone to integrating the networks by getting Sprint devices that are capable, which according to the conference call is 20 Million Sprint devices ready to be used on the T-Mobile network full time once deal is approved by the regulators and finally completed.

      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?
