Qualcomm’s Uplinq conference took place in sunny San Diego this week, and HTC’s Chief Exec, Peter Chou, took to the stage to tell everyone how well the Taiwanese manufacturer is doing.
Apparently HTC shipped 25 million smartphone units in 2010, with a further 9.7 million units in Q1 of 2011 alone. Of course shipping figures don’t equate to sales, but that’s a heck of a lot of phones.
Those figures make HTC one of the five biggest smartphone manufacturers in the world. In some markets, the Taiwanese manufacturer ranks as highly as second.
A Canalys report cites HTC as the top global supplier of Android phones, but Chou reiterated the manufacturer’s commitment to producing handsets for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform.
At last count, we reckon HTC has more than 10 Android and Windows Phone 7 devices in the works. Insania, as Peter Andre would say.
