HTC might not be in in the best of financial health at this particular point in time, but this does not mean that they are about to throw in the towel anytime soon. Having said that, HTC has mentioned that they have a feel good factor in the year ahead. Chang Chialin, CFO and head of global sales for HTC shared, “We feel positive and optimistic about 2014 when compared to 2013.” Chairman Cher Wang added, “Many years ago we started looking at smartwatches and wearables, but we believe that we really have to solve the battery problems and the LCD light problems. These are customer-centric problems.”
If what Wang said is true, then you can be sure that HTC could very well be a force to be reckoned with when it comes to smartwatches and wearables, especially when it comes to battery problems and LCD light issues that other companies might find it difficult to solve. We are, of course, interested to find out whether HTC’s attempt at the smartwatch industry will be able to help lift the company out of its doldrums. How will the other rivals on the smartwatch front react with the new technology that HTC has come up with in their upcoming creation?
