THOUGHT: What's Next for HTC?
Posted by Alfredo Padilla - at 00:49 CET under 09 - Thoughts

High Tech Computers (HTC) has positioned itself as the largest manufacturer of Windows Mobile devices in the world. It has seen incredible growth this past year, and has made moves to sell directly to customers. After the incredible success that HTC has experienced this past year, what’s next for them? Here are some suggestions from yours truly.

HTC is growing rapidly, but except for the highly politicized purchase of Dopod has not made a move to improve its position with strategic partnerships or mergers. There are 2 areas in which I believe that HTC can make strategic moves that will significantly improve its position: first in the area of mobile cameras and second in the area of branding.

THOUGHT: Input, Input, Who’s Got the Input?
Posted by Alfredo Padilla - at 20:08 CET under 09 - Thoughts

One of the most challenging things about mobile technology is figuring out how the user communicates with a device. That is, how am I going to tell my phone, ipod, whatever, what I want it to do? When talking about smartphones, which do so much, this challenge can be even more difficult. There is a careful balance that must be struck between maximizing utility and ease of use.

Today’s smartphones show off a whole range of different input methods, from traditional D-pads and soft keys, to QWERTY keyboards and scroll wheels, yet it seems to me that manufacturers still have not hit on an input method (or combination of methods) that meets all of my needs. In this article I’d like to discuss current input methods, my thoughts about them, and then describe an option that I have not yet seen/used, but that I think may be very powerful.
