In the first half of 2013 we’ve seen some great smartphones being released. Samsung came out with its flagship Android offering, the Galaxy S4. HTC responded with the all metal HTC One, yet another Android powerhouse. Apple held its ground with iPhone 5, which it released late last year. Analyst William Power of R.W. Baird claims based on store checks of four largest U.S. carriers that behind iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4, HTC One is the third most selling smartphone in the country.

The HTC One is reportedly third behind Apple and Samsung flagships at AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. The story is a bit different at Verizon Wireless, where Motorola RAZR HD and other RAZR devices are alternatives to Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5. William Power also claims, based on cosnumer channel checks, that demand for the recently released BlackBerry Q10 is modest. It is believed that apart from die-hard consumers and loyalists, the major demand for BlackBerry Q10 is coming from businesses. The Canadian manufacturer will reportedly be launching 3-4 new smartphones later this year. By the looks of it HTC, which recently reported a 98% fall in profits, has got itself a winner.
