Android effect and the (HTC) diamond

Image representing HTC as depicted in CrunchBaseTaiwanese phone makers HTC are doing well as they have announced a 30% increase of September revenues reaching 13,7 billion Taiwanese dollars (over 420 million dollars) compared to the same period last year.

For 2008 third trimester, their total revenues amounted to 37,86 billion taiwanese dollars (over 1,16 billion dollars), 30% more than last year's third trimester.

HTC's good form is mainly due to their latest smartphone, the HTC diamond, with over a million units already shipped worldwide. But this is also due to Android, for which HTC are producing the first smartphone. They are expecting to ship between 400 000 and 500 000 units before the end of the year and plan to sell for the whole year between 13 and 15 million G1 phones. Despite these rough financial times, some seem to be doing pretty well!
