HTC – “Europeans and Asians continued to be more familiar with smartphones running on the Windows platform”

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 HTC’s director of investor relations Joey Cheng Cheng said that despite the early adoption of Google Inc’s Android by US consumers, Europeans and Asians continued to be more familiar with smartphones running on the Windows platform.

“There is a new learning curve for each new platform,” 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.

HTC has re-affirmed separately that they still expect to ship their first Windows Phone 7 device by the end of the year.

HTC’s first-quarter profits grew 2.5 percent from a year ago to NT$5 billion, amid growing momentum from Europe and Asia.
