HTC Corp has said that it expects record revenue in Q2 2010, and expects to ship 4.5 million devices, 50% up on the same period last year.
HTC has launched 6 devices this quarter, only one of which, the HTC HD Mini, is Windows Mobile, but HTCâ€™s director of investor relations Joey Cheng Cheng said that despite the early adoption of Google Incâ€™s Android by US consumers, Europeans and Asians continued to be more familiar with smartphones running on the Windows platform.
â€œThere is a new learning curve for each new platform,â€ Cheng said.
HTC said that it still expects to launch 2 further devices this quarter, and is widely expected to release 2 further Windows Mobile devices, the HTC Tera and the much anticipated HTC Trophy before the end of June 2010.
HTCâ€™s first-quarter profits grew 2.5 percent from a year ago to NT$5 billion, amid growing momentum from Europe and Asia.
