If I were Peter Chou, I'd be a little more confident about HTC's current situation and future in mobile technology. I would say that given HTC's latest lineup (pretty damn good phones overall) and steadily expanding influence on the market today, I'd say the worst HAS passed. None of this "probably" stuff, that doesn't make you sound very sure about what you and your company are doing with themselves.
As an HTC phone owner, I am happy with HTC's quality of products and I am confident that they will continue to regain some of that lost market share. I do agree their issues with carrier exclusivity are hurting them in the long run, but hopefully HTC can either use that to their benefit (somehow) or start putting certain models on multiple carriers; an easy way to expand revenue and popularity. Either way, they can work it out this year, all it takes is some good business decisions and some good phones.

I hope the worst has passed for them. Really looking forward to M7, if M7 is carrier locked again, then HTC will deserve to fall. Don't make the same mistakes HTC.

"Additionally, the company is trying to bring life to its marketing department, and the ended dispute with Apple over patents is also a positive thing"
Debatable. They did the equivalant of just handing the bully their lunch money every day with a big smile and a "thank you" instead of fighting for it.
