50% of HTC's 2010 shipments to be Android-powered
HTC is known as the largest manufacturer of Windows Mobile smartphones. However, that Microsoft-bound image is soon going to change, Digitimes informs. Taiwanese industry sources seem to believe that 30% of HTC’s phones in 2009 will be Android-based ones. Moreover, that figure is expected to get even higher – about 50% of the company’s 2010 shipments to be running on Google’s OS.

The manufacturer is also said to be working on a “high-profile”, “entry-level” 3G handset based on Qualcomm’s BREW Mobile Platform. Expected to launch sometime in September or October, that touchscreen-equipped device is rumored to utilize the TouchFLO 3D or Sense interface on top.
