Looks like everyone is doing their Q4 reports this week. First was Microsoft and now HTC is reporting huge numbers this morning, including a whopping $3.3 billion in revenue and doubling the amount of phones shipped from 2009 to bring them to roughly 25 million total phones brought to market. Not to shabby for the OEM who went public about 3 years ago.
On top of the news, they expect Android to keep going strong and yes, those huge numbers are mostly Android related. They also see WP7 doing well but they had nothing significant to say on the matter outside of they saw "tremendous opportunities" for customers using the new OS. Plus launching five phones with the new OS shows certainly shows their commitment. They rival Samsung for #4 maker in the world, falling behind Nokia, RIM and Apple.
