HTC has created a new service called Best Deals. Best Deals will be available on certain HTC devices in the UK, Italy, Germany, France and Spain. HTC is releasing a software update for the One X and One S that will load Best Deals onto each phone. In November, Best Deals will be available on the HTC One X+, Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S.
Best Deals searches a user’s area to find them special offers on goods and services. HTC has partnered with services such as LivingSocial, Trip Advisor, Offerum and Qype Deals to populate the list of deals. There will be around 1,700 deals available to start.
HTC hasn’t been doing too good financially as of late. The company needs to do something to bring it back to profitability. I don’t think Best Deals will bring it out of the red. HTC needs to do something about its smartphone strategy. If it doesn’t, the likes of Samsung will continue to eat away at its market share.
