HTC is sizzling hot. Not only does the Taiwanese based manufacturer make the most desirable Windows Mobile handset with the soon to launch HD2, it also has honed its craft in making Android phones. From the G1 to the soon to launch models like the HTC Incredible, HTC Legend and the HTC Desire, the company has a legion of drooling fans who are grabbed by the handset's styles. This summer, expect to see the HTC Supersonic,set to be Sprint's first 4G WiMax phone as we have reported
, released for take off. But this is all in the future. Right now, the company is doing something right. According to DigiTimes, February revenues rose 10% year over year with a total in U.S. Dollars of $319.26 million. For the first two months of 2010, HTC has brought in $670 U.S. Dollars, close to an 11% jump from the first two months of 2009. And this is BEFORE the U.S. launch of the HD2 and the Android models. First quarter revenue is estimated to reach $1 to $1.07 billion U.S. Dollars and then jump a hefty 20% in the second quarter.
Last year, HTC held a 4.6% share of the global smartphone market. We will have to see if Apple (holding a 14.6% share of the global smartphone pie last year) will slow down it's competitor after filing lawsuits
charging the company with infringing on 20 Apple patents. It might take more than legal action to slow down a company that has a pipeline full of handsets that cellphone fans have been drooling over for months.HTC HD2 US Specifications
