Can Smartphone Visionary Engineer HTC's Second Coming?

Now in his tenth year as CEO of HTC Corp, Peter Chou is lauded as the architect of the Taiwanese firm's award-winning smartphones. But as the company's fortunes have dived, some insiders say he's now an obstacle to any revival. Reuters interviewed a dozen former and current HTC executives who said Chou's abrasive management style and weak strategic vision play their part in the company's decline, which has coincided with the success of Apple Inc's iPhone and Samsung Electronics' Galaxy phones. Motorola has temporarily put the brakes on a custom engraving feature it planned to offer for the Moto X, according to multiple reports. The upcoming Moto Maker experience lets phone owners build a custom Moto X smartphone that includes hand picking colors, wallpaper, and accessories. Unfortunately one of the key features, custom engraving, will not be present at launch.
