This is subjective. Android is a framework, you still have to pay for developers to give you a product that works on your product. iOS is free, because Apple doesn't pay to use it, yet Apple isn't blowing the OS numbers out of the water.


Doesn't make sense because Apple doesn't allow anyone else to use their OS. Android is free open source to anyone who wants to make a phone with it.

Mac OS is free.. windows isn't.

Let's say you buy an HP laptop running win8.. part of the fee for buying the HP laptop is the license for the HP usage of win8 on that device.. it's usually extremely cheap - because Microsoft has a great deal with PC manufacturers like HP, but they still have to pay microsoft for the license to put it on the PC.

and in return you have a bunch of shite phones using your OS and ruining your brand


how is it ruining the brand when they are at 70% market share for all computing devices?

having the full spectrum of offerings (low end w/ older proc, lower res screen; all the way up to high end with everything cutting edge) has given Android manufacturers the ability to dominate market share.

Apple is also rumored to be coming up with a lower end iphone to combat this. Its the reason they came out with the ipad mini even though apple swore you would never want a 7" tablet 3 years ago. And swore you would never want a phone screen larger than 3.5" until they released the iphone 5 with a 4" screen (which is still way too small).

They had a drop in profits of 98% in the first quarter due to development cost of the HTC Facebook phone... and no sales. They still had some profits DESPITE all of the development cost, because their Android department is still printing money.

ETA: How on earth did you even pass 1st grade.. you obviously don't know how to read.

HTC has been dead for basically 2 years now. It is a bad company and they went all out with the HTC One. They put an aluminum unibody case in the phone, each phone takes like 2 hours to simply cut to shape before they install electronics in it. So, yeah each phone is expensive as hell to make.

They tried to put all their chips in, and lost.

5 Million sales so far... and counting, I don't think the HTC One is going to be anything but a profit for them

it is, but I would consider the HTC First as much an android phone as the original HTC phone on AT&T that had such a stripped down version of android on it.. that bing was actually the main search tool on the whole phone.. yeah.

The HTC First isn't an Android device.. it's a Facebook device using a Custom java kernal.

Not saying it isn't a good phone or isn't selling well. I'm saying production costs for that phone are through the roof high.
