    I know three people with HTC phones and they all say the same things, "hardware good, software is also reasonable in the main, but there's bugs in some places that make you want to throw the phone". As a (disinterested) 3rd party I'm not that convinced by HTC's software updates - they seem slowish and patchy.

    When all's said and done though, it'll surely be down to the shareholders to decide whether HTC transforms to become "HTC - an Asus brand company" or stays separate? That's assuming that Asus actually does make a formal bid, and there's a world of difference between that and "having discussions".

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    HTC and ASUS would be an awesome fusion in my eyes. It's always hard for be to decide between both of then. From that day on, it won't

    To be honest I don't think Asus 'needs' HTC, Asus can easily make their own skins for the top of android (they already do on their phones), their hardware can easily be on a par with htc if they make their phones using the same principles and material choices as their zen laptops and stick in some decent hardware and most importantly UPDATE software quickly. I'd also argue that on a consumer scale that more people know of Asus than HTC.

    HTC on the other hand are pretty much shooting themselves in the foot all the time, 'relatively' slow updates drive existing customers away, hardware is honestly looking stale and they kept on with sense ui when everyone was going 'lightweight', they're now coming round but it might be too late to regain traction. Then they have the issue of samsung, lenovo/motorola and even asus eating into their margins.
