HTC twice the phone maker it was a year ago

HTC twice the phone maker it was a year agoHTC has been the most prolific maker of Android handsets since practically day one of the Google OS' existence, and has been similarly active in the early days of Windows Phone 7's existence too.

And all those different models of handset are certainly paying dividends when it comes to good old cash in the back pocket, with HTC's sales figures for May more than doubling the tally from a year ago.

The Taiwanese phonemonger reckons sales for last month hit T$40.62bn (that's £863m in the Queen's coin), a solid increase from April's T$38.73bn.

But go back a full 12 months and you get a real sense of just how formidable HTC's growth has been – May 2010 saw HTC rack up $18.82bn in sales – less than half last month's bumper return.

The last 12 months have seen the likes of the HTC Desire and the HTC Wildfire boost the phone manufacturer's appeal, while the launch of its Windows Phone 7 range has no doubt contributed to the cause too – though not as much as Microsoft would like, we expect.

With all the key ranges having been reloaded for the summer, plus the prospect of dual-core and 3D models taking off over the rest of the year and HTC's Flyer tablets starting to make a splash, HTC will no doubt be hoping to have more good news to report this time next year.
