HTC recently organized an event, where the CEO Peter Chou was present and talked about the future plans of the company. They include doubling the smartphone market share from 5% in 2013 to 10% over the following months, maybe years. There was also talk about tablets…


The event took place in New York and Peter Chou didn’t hesitate to mention that HTC is developing new tablets and wearable computing products. It will be hard for HTC to beat Samsung’s 31% of the market share and Apple’s 16% of the smartphone market. Meanwhile, in the tablet area, with Android products on the rise, HTC has a shot to make a name for itself.

The company’s chairwoman Cher Wang has forecast that the company will be back to productivity in the second quarter of the year. HTC Desire 816, the 5.5 inch phablet will be a driving force here, as will the HTC One M8. As far as tablets go, I’d see HTC not only launching an Android model, but also a Windows 8 one.
