Melvin Chua, Country manager of Singapore at HTC, spoke at the Windows Phone Mango launch in Singapore and claimed that the platform has been crowned with success in terms of customer sales across all platforms with 30% being made up from Windows Phone handsets. What's not clear is whether he's talking about global sales or limited it to Singapore, but that didn't stop Melvin from continuing:

  "We believe that Windows Phone 7 will eventually be better than other platforms and will give Android a run for its money"

John Fernandes, director of marketing and operations at Microsoft Singapore, also took to the stage and said:

"We have over 30,000 apps in less than a year since we launched Marketplace, making Windows Phone as one of the fastest growing mobile app marketplaces, … This is an endorsement of Microsoft’s continued support of the developer communities globally as well as the proven Windows Phone developer platform. We expect this growth momentum of Marketplace to be stronger with the launch of Windows Phone 7.5."

With the recent downturn with Nokia discussing plans with O2 UK, let's hope that HTC remains successful through the launch of their Titan and Radar handsets.
