HTC reported its Q3 financials in October 2011, and posted up profits of $625 million. HTC is expected to be launching some new Tegra quad-core devices soon after href=”http://www.cesweb.org/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Consumer Electronics Show”>CES, perhaps these devices will be able to help HTC turn around.
