You know what they say – two’s company, three’s a crowd. Is the smartphone market getting really crowded? I would like to say so in the affirmative, especially when you have tons of Android-powered devices tussling it out with one another and the iPhone from Apple, while BlackBerry users and Windows Phone 8 fans continue to switch third and four placed positions in their respective markets. Is there room for one more player when it comes to phone manufacturing? A bunch of ex-HTC employees certainly think so, having left the company and kicking off a new smartphone company that they have called Kazam.
Michael Coombes, former head of sales at HTC, will be the CEO of Kazam, while James Atkins, former U.K. marketing head for the company, will remain in this position, albeit for a brand new employer now. Kazam intends to churn out smartphones which are all about “stunning design, robust hardware, and intuitive technology, underpinned with improved customer service.” We do want to wish them the very best in their endeavors for sure.
