The most quoted HTC official is leaving the company after 8 years

The most quoted HTC official is leaving the company after 8 years
Those of you using Android smartphones are probably very interested to learn when exactly your devices will receive a new OS update. Even though not many handset makers commit to a release schedule for Android updates, we get a lot of rumors that point to approximate timeframes. HTC is one of the few companies that often offer quick Android OS updates to all of its flagships that qualify for one. 

As a tech journalist, Mo Versi's Twitter account should be your go-to place for the latest information about HTC's upcoming software updates. That's one of the reasons the Vice President of Product Management for the America region, Mohammed Versi is probably the most quoted person working at HTC. Unfortunately, Mo Versi has just announced that today is his last day at HTC USA, “after 8 amazing years.”

The person who seems to have assumed Mo Versi's role to provide customers with information about future updates is HTC's Global Director of PR Jeff Gordon. Hopefully, we'll be getting news on HTC updates at least as often as before.

Sadly, this isn't the first high-profile official that left HTC this year. The company's smartphone president Chialin Chang resigned back in February after spending six years with the company. HTC states "personal career path" as the main reason for Chang's resignation.

About 5 years too late...

Not really. Only 3 years late when they released the M9. That phone was the root cause of all HTC's misfortunes. The HTC 10 could have been their saving grace but it was too late. Consumers went off to other brands.

Wow, that's unfortunate. Hopefully the new guy would be just as informative.

The marketing team and the one who insisted the M9 brought HTC down.

Bad decision making is purely what brought the company down. If only they would listen to our comments and suggestions, they wouldn't have fallen as bad as they are now. They continue to be stubborn with overpricing their devices, not selling it in a lot of regions, poor after sales service and their phones now look like every other device out there. Even without brand recognition, those few factors could have made a small market of interested buyers and they won't sink this low
