Go read the same meme at the launch of the Sensation, the One X and now the One.

Now go back and compare total HTC revenue and earnings between 2010 and 2012.

I'll help.

2010 revenue - NT$ 278.8b, or US$ 9.28b
2011 revenue - NT$ 465.8b, or US$ 15.5b
2012 revenue - NT$ 289.0b. or US$ 9.63b


And if anyone wants to try arguing about profits, get your ducks in a row and come loaded for bear.

I'm not going to politely tiptoe around these sensationalist lies any longer.
Just wanted to add this one fun fact that the economic journalist/experts seem to always conveniently fail to mention:

HTC hasn't reported a loss since they were listed on the stock exchange in March 2002.
