The Sky Is Falling For Smartphone Maker HTC

Smartphone manufacturer HTC is in disarray. According to a report from The Verge, the company is hemorrhaging executives from its Seattle-based office amid poor sales, internal turmoil and controversy. Within the last several months, HTC has lost its chief produdct officer Kouji Kodera, VP of global communications Jason Gordon and product strategy manager Eric Lin among several others. 

In a classic “the sky is falling” scenario, everybody is blaming everybody else. Many in HTC blame Facebook for the problems selling the HTC First – “The Facebook Phone” – while others blame erratic snap decisions from CEO and co-founder Peter Chou.
