In it to win it – HTC dreams of selling 8.5 mln phones in Q4
The next shot at greatness for HTC might come courtesy of Windows Phone 7, and the next generations of Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipsets. If we gather all rumored HTC devices slated for the fall, most of them will be running WP7. We've had numerous reincarnations of the same specs appearing under different names for different carriers. The rumored HTC Mondrian might become the HTC Gold in UK, HTC Mozart on T-Mobile, and HTC Scorpion on Verizon. Not to mention WP7's anointed partner AT&T, which might be getting it earlier than anybody else. These puppies are supposed to run the second generation 1.3GHz Snapdragon made with the 45nm technology, which should bring all kinds of good to battery life and performance.
When we add to the mix leaks for an HTC Vision phone running Android, and powered by dual-core CPU (what the third generation Snapdragons just happen to be), HTC might as well reach their 24mln yearly sales target, and then some. All in all, good things happen to those who wait... till October.
