HTC, meanwhile, has been benefiting from the demand for Android, but also has been hurt by its Windows Mobile devices which seem to be dragging down the company. With Motorola grabbing the momentum and HTC being weighed down by non-Android phones, DigiTimes expects Motorola to take over the position as the top Android provider in 2010 with 34.7% of the market while HTC's share drops by more than half to 31.9% For the Schaumburg based company, it is an amazing turnaround story.

How is windows dragging down the company??? Those who don't know the true benefit of a windows smartphone always look to bash. Congratulations on a 100k plus apps of crap. Hey check out my star wars light saber app! The market place may not have as much apps but how many stupid apps does one person need. Lets talk about real function! And with the offer of the microsoft myphone site now windows phones shouldn't be under estimated! I am not bashing the android os because I do think it is nice but it still doesn't have all the functions of winmo. I just find it funny that this site constantly bashes winmo. How about supporting your statements with facts!

I understand where you're coming from. It's about sales though. WinMo doesn't pull in sales. It's really wasting HTC's time and resources to produce WinMo phones when they don't sell as well as a DROID or something to that affect. MS hasn't shown a huge commitment to WinMo until just a while ago. Trying to refresh WinMo 4 with 5 and then 5 with 6, without ever really committing themselves to a quality product that is visually stunning, easy to use, and feature rich (like Windows 7), has really turned potential customers off.

But you act like it's all about consumers. There are a large amount of companies that require Windows Mobile for their cell phones and the same with Blackberries. And I am tired of this whole crap about light saber or lighter apps. People make apps because there is a demand for them. Their are awesome apps and their are stupid apps. But the point is, you have your choice. The problem with Windows Mobile is that there isn't a standard. The screen can be different sizes and it can be with or without touch. Developers find themselves making programs for the specific phone instead of the overall operating system. Because of that, no one really buys Windows mobile on the consumer end of things. Luckily, that will change as Microsoft is consolidating their screen resolution and power to a certain standard.

I love how you talk about how stupid the apps are in Android, please look at Apple. Asian porn? Fart noises? You call those applications? Grow up. People never actually realize the work that goes in to making these things.

Dude, you're acting like someone's forcing these phones down your throat. Chill the fuck out man. Btw, the X10 is never coming out, and if it ever does, by then we'll have 2MHz phones destroying networks.
