HTC reports seeing “better than expected" sales for its WP7 handsets
We've already reported on how European mobile carriers like Vodafone and O2 are seeing strong demand for Windows Phone 7 handsets, but now the manufacturers are going on the record and giving us all their take on the matter.

From the sounds of it all, HTC is looking to be in a healthy position after reports hint to “better than expected sales for its Microsoft Windows Phone 7 smartphones in Europe and Australia." It was hard to not see such expected news from the venerable smartphone maker since they currently hold top models like the HTC HD7 and HTC 7 Mozart.

Not to be outdone just yet, both LG and Samsung are also apparently experiencing “rising demand from carriers.” In the end, it's looking pretty good for Microsoft as we near the official launch date of Windows Phone 7 in the US. If the European launch of WP7 has any indication, the US could end up following the same path – which obviously bodes well for Microsoft as they attempt to recover some market share they've lost in the last couple of years to the competition.
