HTC, one of the biggest manufacturers of Android handsets, is expecting quite the revenue numbers in Q4 of this year. The company says they plan on not only doubling their smartphone shipments out to 9 million, but also plan on bringing in at least $3.3 billion. This would bring the expected smartphone shipments in units to be 24.5 million, which would double last year’s.
While HTC doesn’t rely solely on Android for their platform, it’s obvious that Google’s OS has played a huge part in their success. As HTC told Reuters:
We believe the overall pie is still big enough to have at least three to four tier-1 players enjoy the growth momentum.
We look forward to seeing where the market heads with this kind of competition, as good capitalism always leads to great innovation.
