  1. Taiwan-based HTC Corporation has a market capitalization of $33.9 billion. A very impressive figure, but it becomes even more so when you compare this number to two companies that were many times larger than HTC just a few years ago, as pointed out by All Things Digital.

    i have used a couple of htc smart phones and i must commend them for the quality of products they make. i hope they get to go even higher heights, nokia on the other hand has gone back even though they had so much of a head start, i know its going to be hard but nokia can still come back and i wish they do, until then HTC ftw.
  3. Wow, I am really surprised.

    I am a Desire owner and thought HTC is some smaller company than that. I was a big Nokia fan for years, but since phones are getting clever Nokia proved nothing. They are way behind and I have no clue why they are acting like this.


    HTC on the other side for this year they look quite weak with their lineup. HTC flyer is the same. I like it but looking at the specs it has to be really really cheap compared to other competitors.

    About a decade, nobody had even heard of HTC. At that time, they were manufacturing phones for the better known companies and even custom-made smartphone models for specific telecom companies. From a little known OEM to a company that has surpassed the market capitalization of the industry leader, that's quite an achievement.

    I am not surprised by this, but there is one unique aspect in this, HTC make one hell of 'boring' looking (but generally reliable) devices, so to achieve this on top of that is phenominal.
