HTC June Sales Up 87% on Android Strength
HTC's smartphone sales continued their upward trend in June, rising 87 percent year-over-year to $1.56 billion.
The company's June sales momentum was down slightly from May, when sales more than doubled from 2010, but continued to be strong.
The Taiwan-based smartphone maker has benefitted from surging demand for Android devices.
AT&T said last week it would carry the HTC Status, also known as the company's Facebook phone, and Sprint began selling a 3D version of the HTC Evo smartphone as well as the company's Evo View tablet in late June.
HTC also has high-profile devices with Verizon Wireless, including the operator's first LTE smartphone, the HTC Thunderbolt.
The company has not released its full second-quarter results yet, but its CFO Winston Yung told Bloomberg that HTC's handset shipments met its 11 million target, with total sales more than doubling to $4.3 billion.
HTC's official second-quarter earnings are expected to be announced tomorrow, July 6.
