HTC hasn't given a lot of details about what led to his position being terminated, the official press release only mentions that Chang has made a decision to move on from the company because of his "personal career plan". HTC announced the move on its investors page earlier today and it's effective immediately, though Chang's successor is yet to be named.

Chang Chia-lin (張嘉臨) resigned on Wednesday as president of Taiwan-based HTC Corp's Smartphone and Connected Devices Business, at a time when the Taiwanese smartphone brand is struggling against stiff global competition.

HTC hasn't officially quit the smartphone business just yet, but with the Google deal and now this, it is seeming increasingly likely that HTC may stop producing its own phones.
