HTC Decline Continues, 31.4% Down Compared To November 2011
HTC needs to do something, fast! Whether that means to hire a better marketing team or to release phones like the Droid DNA internationally, now, is completely up to them. Else, headlines like these will continue to pop up every month, every quarter. After crumbling profits in Q3 — a trend lasting for a year now — October’s numbers were also 61% down compared to the same period of last year.
November’s figures aren’t that much different either. It’s a smaller regress but still, it exists. According to HTC wording, November’s consolidated sales were around $732 million which is 31.4% less compared to November 2011. No further details were made public. However, with the holiday season and a great device like the Droid DNA (though barely available in the big picture), we’re hoping to see this trend stop or else that rumored M7 will become uninteresting way before its release.
Update: Compared to October 2012, HTC reported sales of $NT 21.2 billion, representing a 23.18% increase over the previous month when it managed to score $NT 17.21B.
