To me this is a good start, or merge with a company that has a diverse technolgy portfolio in selling other consumer goods like HDTV's etc.. Every company has bad dogs, Samsung, LG Etc.. But all of them have made outstanding devices. This is what HTC really needs. Its hard for a company like HTC, Nokia and Blackberry to have a narrow focus of goods like smartphones. While many other devices are not phones, they do have releated technology that could compliment and improve both types of consumer goods. As well as being able to take a hit if something doesn't do well. Dell and Lenovo would be good options.
