HTC aims to rank as one of top 3-5 handset vendors, says paper
Commercial Times, August 19; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 19 August 2008]

High Tech Computer (HTC) aims to rank as of one of the top 3-5 branded handset vendors in the global market, HTC CEO Peter Chou told reporters in China last week, according to a Chinese-language Commercial Times report.

While Chou did not provide a timetable as to when HTC is expected to reach its goal, HTC still has a long way to go before reaching its target, given that HTC is expected to ship only 15 million handsets in 2008 compared to shipments of 100 million units projected for the current third ranked vendor Motorola and 90-100 million units for the fifth ranked vendor Sony Ericsson, the paper said.

Motorola Plans to Answer iPhone

Motorola has announced that it plans to release 34 new phones by the end of 2008, twice as many as introduced during the first six months of the year.

One of those devices will be Motorola’s answer to the iPhone, according to CEO Gregory Brown, who is more than aware that the iPhone is now in its second incarnation and Motorola has yet to produce a competitor.

While Brown declined further comment, a person briefed on Motorola’s development plans said that the company has been shown a device similar to HTC’s Touch, complete with haptic touch interface and code named Halo.

Despite Motorola’s business problems and CEO shake-ups, many believe that the inventor of the Startac and RAZR may well have a touch screen smart phone yet up its sleeve.

The good news is we’ll know by the end of the year.

For SE Fanboy, don't arogan. Read this...

Sony's profit slumps by 47%, due to poor sales of mobile phone handsets [ 01-08-2008 15:53 ]
Author: Serge Novikov Source: NYTimes Translation by: Administrator

Sony Ericsson have been in a slump of sorts recently, what with them issuing their second profit warning this year, attributed to less than stellar sales of mobile phones. On the Sony side of things, their quarterly profit fell by almost half – 47%, to be precise. Sony said it anticipated weak sales of its mobile phone handsets, as, recently, they have been facing stiff competition, from the likes of Nokia, and Samsung. Plus the global economic slowdown along with yen's appreciation and higher fuel and raw materials prices also have had a hand in Sony's latest downfall, although most other Japanese exporters have felt the severe effects of the abovementioned factors too. Another factor could be attributed to the fact that the company has struggled to get some handsets to market on time – and even cancelling some – such as their Paris handset, which, by all accounts, was simply lackluster all-round – that could potentially make loyal customers lose faith in the company, resulting in a potential loss of sales.

I know you doesn't know anything about Motorola. Don't make yourself to be clown in here. Hahaha... Your SE with 5 Mega Pixel Camera Phone can't beat Motorola ZN5. I prediction in Q3,2008 for SE will falling down profit again. Look how Motorola agresive to produce Motorola Mobile Phone; total type of Motorola Mobile Phone until the end of year 2008 will be more than 40 types.

Ha……… Moto fan boys showing various things to hide truth. Moto take another 5 years to develop 8MP cam. Fully Kodak cooperation develops the Moto 5MP. That’s why the Moto phones already labeled Kodak. Moto fans said HTC designs for SE. If anyone seen HTC label on Xperia. The truth is SE and HTC supporting to each other. The Xperia all electronic parts made by Sony excluding processor. Moto need at least another couple of years to develop phones like C905, W902, Xperia X1. How you said SE sales going down? SE share market increased from 7.7% to 8.3% in 2008 Q2.

If you now everyone copies everyone in this market; SE Fanboy don't says this is copy from SE W910 but the fact is different. What a shame Sony Ericsson Fanboy compare Motorola ZN200 with Sony Ericsson C905. Hahaha... Compare with same price and class.

What a poor knownledge. You just remember about Motorola Razr and Motorola Rizr. Do you read the news? Do you read any review? Have you read comparison between Motorola ZN5 vs Nokia N82 vs Sony Ericsson C905? Nokia N82 versus Sony Ericsson C905; and the winner is Nokia N82. Motorola ZN5 versus Nokia N82; and the winner is Motorola ZN5. No use has Cybershot name but the fact Sony Ericsson C905 photos is bad. Have seen how exclusive and built in quality of Motorola ZN5? Motorola ZN5 already in the China market and i has one unit Motorola ZN5.

No one single type Sony Ericsson Mobile Phone can sale like Motorola V3 Razr (100 million units for 3 years), what a shame Sony Ericsson Fanboy.

Motorola has flip phone; SE Copied.
Motorola has thin candybar phone; SE Copied.
Motorola has rotate phone; SE Copied.
SE G700 and SE G900 is really similiar like Nokia Phone.

SE is in dangerous falling down profit pretty fast. SE just can only hope to SE XPeria X1 (what a shame; design from HTC), SE C905 and cheap SE Phone for help SE profit. In Q2,2008 Motorola still rank 3 because Motorola has many Motorola cheap phone.

Motorola posts small profit as phone sales beat

Motorola ZN200 is for Low End User (around no more than USD 200). Look Motorola resurrection sign; Motorola produce more types than before. Motorola have 3 types of 5 Mega Pixel Camera Phone sooner; Motorola ZN5 (candybar), Motorola Un-name (slide) and Motorola Un-name (rotate). Motorola with 8 Mega Pixel Camera Phone sooner.

Hey Eugene and other Nokia fans, I think u should b comparing ur N96 to the new pink Nokia flip phone(the one with an analog watch on the external screen) that looks like an ooold Samsung. Why don't u compare ur N96 with the Samsung INNOV8 or the SE C905? Have u seen the ZN5 or A1800? Well, there are so many smartphones released lately which are ages ahead of Motorola but they'll make a come-back in the future and I don't say they'll be no. 1 or the best because there's no best phone now, it's a highly competitive market now. There's SE, Nokia, HTC, i-Mate, iPhone, Samsung, Motorola, LG, etc. What I realised is that every phone is best for something, like the iPhone has the best browser. Get that?
