HTC reports solid financial numbers

Taiwan-based phone maker HTC announced solid financial results for its last fiscal quarter. The company, which sells more smartphones based on both Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 operating system than any other company in the US, announced via a press release that it had revenues of $4.31 billion in the quarter that ended on June 30 and net profits of $607 million; that is almost double what the company recorded in the same time period a year ago.

Overall HTC announced that it shipped 12.1 million devices in the last quarter, an increase of 123.7 percent from the same period a year ago. While HTC didn't break down the shipment numbers in terms of individual smartphone operating systems, a study by Nielsen released earlier this week showed that HTC phones now compromise 20 percent of all smartphones sold in the US. That number is split into Android-based phones (14 percent) and Windows Mobile phones (6 percent).

For the second half of 2011 HTC has announced it plans to ship between six and eight products. Those products will include more Android and Windows Phone 7 based phones as well as tablet products. Earlier this week reports hit the Internet that HTC will release two new Windows Phone 7 smartphones, the HTC Ignite and the HTC Prime, that will have the upcoming Mango feature update. The same reports also revealed another new HTC smartphone, the Eternity, with a massive 4.7 inch screen. So far HTC has not confirmed or denied the existence of these phones.

123.7 percent increase is unbelievable.

But 12.1M x $5 is going to Microsoft Inc. this quater!

How about Apple. Every wants to cash in on Android success. It's a good thing Microsoft has a backup plan if Mango has no Juice.

Yeah Mango is going to flop horribly, because of haters like you.

If so far what we know about their "One OS" strategy is true, then their mobile strategy is 'fool-proof'.

You know the one about One OS for slates, PCs, Xbox, servers and mobile.(and Surface)

I'm that influential or will Mangos be out of season? Something to ponder.
