What does it mean?

HTC itself is silent and does not comment on the deletion.applications. It can be assumed that the company decided to reboot or even exit from a business that is unprofitable for itself. But perhaps, HTC just decided to abandon the Sense UI branded shell and release smartphones on “pure” Android as part of the Android One program.
