Taiwanese Smartphone maker’s HTC market challenges have seen it lose more than half of its share of online usage, Chitika found in a new study. The firm fourth quarter earnings fell, missing Wall Street’s expectations, and the rough patch continued in the first quarter of 2012. This study conducted by Chitika reveals that the struggling handset makers usage share has declined by more than 60% in the past five months from 18.22% to 7.28% based on traffic across its network.
In comparison Apple’s market share grew from 46.84% to 76.88%, an increase of 64.13% and other Android vendors such as Samsung and Huawei have recorded continued modest growth.

Its success now mostly depends on whether it can stack up against Samsung’s new Galaxy as well as whether Apple can sustain interest in the iPhone 4S. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
