Re: HTC makes lots of models
said by xenophon:It has nothing to do with HTC in regards to the shortages. If you google any of the current HTC phones, you will find that the issue with meeting demand is actually due to Samsung.
HTC probably makes too many models to be able to supply any in mass quantities. Palm was able to produce about 500K Pres a month and it wasn't exactly a hot phone. EVO is the first phone the media compares to iPhone yet HTC can only product 300K so far. That's not much of a supply. Sprint needs to get the Sammy Epic out ASAP.
They are the makes of the AMOLED screen that is present in the HTC Incredible as well as the HTC Evo and there is yield issues with Samsung not being able to mass produce them quickly.
There is now talk that HTC may be switching the screens to TFT screens created by Sony to push more units out into the wild.
On a side note, hehe, there is speculation that Sammy is hoarding the screens to themselves due to the new Galaxy S phone using that screen and them making a phone flavor for every major provider.
