HTC Reports Better than Expected Android Plays big part



Taiwan- Smartphone maker HTC reported their second quarter revenue figures today and saw the highest increase in revenue since 2007. Although they are the largest maker of Smartphones utilizing theWindows mobile operating system, their Android handsets are one of the key reasons for this growth. In AdMob’s recently published survey, and the last one for a while since their acquisition by google, the HTC Dream, HTC Hero, HTC Magic and Nexus One were all among the top 10 Android handsets.

HTC showed a total revenue of 1.88 Billion and a total profit of 268 million after taxes. These figures represent an increase of 62% over the previous quarter.

In June alone HTC saw revenue of $741 million which is attributed to the Android platform shipping 160,000 handsets per day.

The numbers are a little early and despite having supplier problems the HTC Incredible and the HTC Evo are sure to drive their numbers even higher for the next month.

Although there have been no official reports, rumors are that HTC is in development of a “Vision” handset as well as a few others slated for T-mobile this fall. HTC is currently the only manufcaturer of smartphone handsets with a model available on all 4 carriers they are:

HTC My Touch Slide 3G- Tmobile
