HTC “pleased” with first-day HTC HD2 sales

soldouthtchd2In an interview with Forbes at CTIA Jason Mackenzie, vice president of HTC’s North American division, said the company was pleased with first-day sales of the HTC HD2 on T-Mobile.

The device, which experienced long shortages in Europe when it was first released, was expected to do less well on T-Mobile USA, due to the now confirmed lack of a Windows Phone 7 upgrade and the recent announcement of the better specified HTC Evo.

It may however be the case that prospective punters should try and buy the device sooner rather than later, or face waiting weeks for the smartphone to be restocked, much like Europe did after demand unexpectedly exceeded supply.

Mackenzie said he expected the HTC HD2 to be "viable" for the rest of the year, an attitude buyers would be wise to embrace given the highly specified Windows Phone 7 devices we  can expect to see from HTC before the end of the year.
