PC World reports this morning that everyone's favorite device manufacturer HTC is on pace to have sold 1 million Touch Diamonds by the middle of this month, and that it "is definitely able to reach its goal of shipping 2 million Touch Diamond handsets by the end of 2008."

And as if that weren't enough:

However, sources at the Taiwan handset industry speculated that HTC will eventually revise upward its shipping target for this year, and that HTC is likely to ship 2.5 to 3 million Touch Diamond handsets before the end of the year.

That said, as Dieter and Mal pointed out in their latest podcast, saying you've sold a million or so "units" doesn't necessarily mean that there are a million people walking around with Touch Diamonds. But, the Diamond's numbers are hardly anything to sneeze at, and we still have a little while longer before it's even released in the U.S

By comparison, Palm recently announced it had shipped 2 million Centros, and the iPhone 3G sold 1 million units in its first three days.
