HTC surpasses Nokia in market capitalization
Just a couple of years ago, you might not have even heard about this Taiwanese company called HTC. Now, riding the success of its smartphone lineup, the quietly brilliant company has surpassed Nokia in terms of market capitalization reaching $33.8 billion, more than Nokia's $32.8 billion. It's also well ahead of BlackBerry maker RIM, which has $28.5 billion worth of market value.
HTC's market value skyrocketed with growth of over 30 times in the last five years – all due to flourishing mobile business. A recent Goldman Sachs report suggested that HTC hasn't reached its peak just yet and will continue growing. What's behind the growth? “A very unique business model and ecosystem strategy,” the report underlines.

I am sold on HTC. While all device makers make some really good products, they all also make really bad ones. HTC has had some misses (I hear really poor things on the Hero, for example), but have learned from these misses to improve the product they put out to a level of quality that is almost unfair. Whatever carrier you end up with, you will find a solid, smooth performing phone.

I'm sold on them too. My first Droid experience was the Incredible and now the T-Bolt is another great experience...I played around with the Moto's, Samsungs and the hTc has a great feel for functionality and ease. Was leanin on the Xoom but now I'm glad to wait for their tablets to come out.
