Life is good for HTC, the handset maker riding the wave of Android in the smartphone market. So good, in fact, that the company is on pace to hit a new high in handset shipments this quarter.
According to a report in the Chinese-language Commercial Times, HTC will likely ship 4.5 million units in the second quarter. That's a significant bump over the first quarter, which is expected to note 3.3-3.5 million units once all the numbers are tallied.
Much of HTC's success can be traced to Android-based devices, with several new models on tap, including the HTC Desire, HTC Legend, and HTC Incredible. Windows Mobile is also seeing some action from HTC, including the much-touted HTC HD2 and upcoming HTC HD Mini.
