HTC Shipped 12.1 Million Smartphones Last Quarter

Seriously, what is with all these consumer tech companies? All of them seem to be doing extremely well; at least that’s the impression I get when I check their quarterly results. All the major tech companies – Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Samsung – which posted their Q2 2011 results in the last week have had record quarters with huge revenue growth.

Today, HTC did the exact same thing. Its Q2 2011 results have surpassed expectations, with net profits of  NT$17.52 billion,  up 102.9%  year over year. It sold 12.1 million units in Q2, which is 123.7% higher than sales in the second quarter of 2010.

It shipped many new products in Q2, including the HTC Sensation, EVO  3D, Wildfire  S, ChaCha, Salsa  and  the Flyer.

“Consumer  reactions  to  our  award‐winning  designs  have  driven  us  to  another  record‐breaking  quarter, said  Peter  Chou,  CEO  of  HTC.  “Our  teams  work  so  hard  to  create  each  individual  
experience  on  the  device,  and  it  is  gratifying  for  all  of  us  to  see  them  embraced  at  the  volume  levels  
we  are  consistently  reporting  across  the  globe.”

HTC expects to ship about 13.5 million devices in the next quarter.  It is currently the second most popular Android device manufacturer worldwide, after Samsung. In the U.S. smartphone market, it has a 20% overall share, second only to Apple, which has a 28% share with the iPhone.
