Component shortages slow Windows Phone 7 sales, relief coming soon
Holiday season is right around the corner and growing demand for the company's Android and Windows Phone 7 products played its part too. HTC is hopeful to respond to the high demand by December despite the expected peak in sales at the end of the year.
Unofficial reports put first-day sales of Windows Phone 7 handsets at 40,000 units, dwarfed by Apple's iPhone 4 stunning 600,000 first-day sales. However, it's all suggestions with no official figures yet. And others claim WP7 phones like the HTC HD7 are flying off the shelves and have actually sold out. Whatever sales turn out to be, it is clear that the new OS has a lot of potential. Don't forget to catch up with our in-depth look of Redmond's latest and greatest!

HTC is not a Korean company. They are a Taiwanese company with a US location in Seattle, WA. Why the heck do I keep coming back to this site???

Iphone 4 sold 600,000 units because anyone with a current iphone and a contract expiring ANYTIME in 2010 was eligible to upgrade.
