With almost half the year already complete, HTC is making some big predictions about their projected sales for the entire year. HTC has progressively managed to captivate users around the world with their lineup of smart phones. It's great that they support the Windows Mobile and Android platform while creating some of the best looking phones out there. During a press briefing, HTC's own Peter Chou had some goals set in mind for their year end outlook. Always trying to beat the previous year, HTC is looking to sell 20 percent more handsets by the end of the year than in 2008 – roughly 14.5 million units versus the 12 million from last year. Those are some ambitious goals during a time when the world economy is pointing to a decline in mobile phone sales. Nonetheless, HTC's offering is looking pretty good with some stellar devices being released relatively soon.
