It seems that something similar has taken place with pre-orders for the HTC Desire 816. When it was announced last week that HTC's handset had scored 450,000 pre-orders, the news was considered so positive for the Taiwan manufacturer that its shares rose. And this weekend, HTC's Weibo account featured the news that the HTC Desire 816 had hit the 1 million mark in pre-orders. Time to celebrate in Taiwan?
Well, as it turned out, those 1 million pre-orders for HTC's phone were just as illusory as the million pre-orders for the Nokia X. HTC, in fact, called it a "0 Yuan pre-order" which is about what the value of these pre-orders are to both Nokia and HTC.
