HTC is pulling out of Brazil after failing to capitalize on the growing market, blog AndroidPIT reported today.
According to the blog, the company is shutting down operations in Brazil, laying off dozens of workers, and stopping the wholesale of its devices. HTC has promised to continue its customer support in the market, AndroidPIT said.
The company did not immediately respond to an e-mail from CNET, but an HTC representative told AndroidPIT that the company made the decision after "analyzing the sales numbers." When we hear back from HTC, we'll update this post.
