It's not that, but the fact that people are wising up to HTC's policies in that they are only supporting certain phones with ICS. Plus, the build quality on some of their phones have been questionable.

That's not the truth. HTC only went into a loss because most people went for the iphone 4S without actually contemplating their decision. It was an iphone, people wanted it. HTC continues to have some of the best built phones of all the phone makers. And their phones are sure to survive at least 5 drops and not shatter like a piece of over-hyped hceap glass that cracks with the first drop and shatters with the next.

It took the Thunderbolt what, like 6 months to get GB? And not to add in the fact that it had so many problems before and after. And a lot of people have reported issues with HTC phones charging ports burning out.
Say what you want about the iPhone, regardless how untrue they are, at least they make their devices last. The 3GS is still able to get iOS5 which is saying a lot considering the device is two years old.

The issue with gingerbread isn't HTC's fault.....it's verizon's. And there have been quite a few issues with the apple iphone 4 and the 4S. They take 1 1/2 years and then spit out a re-hashed design with battery head-phone jack problems. I consider that a bigger issue because of the amount of time they wasted. And if you want to compare Apples to HTCs, compare the best that release at the same time. The rezound blows the iphone 4 out of the water with better build quality, a bigger screen and heavy customization abilities. Even if the 3GS was a good phone for its time, its 2011 now and quad-cores are already going to hit us in a month or so.

the iphone effect? how about the crappy phone effect. HTC's phones lately cant keep up with samsung, not apple. The amaze vs the SGS2.. who picked the amaze? heck, any HTC phone vs the SGS2.
Maybe if they stopped shoving crapdragon processors in everything people would chose them more often.

Watch the iPhone effect smash down other phones over the holidays. Your time on PA is running out.

And when the Rezound rolls out, HTC will have one of the must-have handsets again....

well most of ppl don't see why should choose Rezound over Galaxy Nexus when you can have ICS instantly with better specs.
