Another market that HTC will enter is the wearables market. CEO Chou said that the company worked with Microsoft a few years ago on a smartwatch that never saw the light of day, but right now he is not sure when HTC will try again. The current smatwatch market, he says, is full of early versions and gimmicks. Still, Chou calls the wearables market a "critical" one for HTC to be in.
Overall, Chou says that the HTC One is selling well and that the company's problems are in the mid to low end of the market. Some see HTC as returning to its roots as a contract manufacturer, something that came up recently with rumors that HTC is building a smartphone for Amazon.
