HTC Overtakes Apple to Become No.1 Smartphone Vendor in US in Q3 2011
HTC overtook Apple to become the largest smartphone vendor in the valuable United States market for the first time ever during the third quarter of 2011. HTC has demonstrated that it is possible to succeed in the crowded American market with the right products, sub-brands and distribution presence. However, HTC’s leadership will likely be short-lived and it could prove to be a peak, due to inventory issues and rising competition from Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S2.
