HTC plans to ship 60 million smartphones next year
Samsung is not the only Asian phone maker that has big plans for next year.
Reportedly, HTC also wants to considerably increase the number of handsets sold throughout 2011.
According to DigiTimes, the Taiwanese company will sell a total of 20 million smartphones this year and it “will eventually” ship up to 60 million units in 2011.
Of course, unlike Samsung, HTC will sell mostly smartphones – it remains to be seen how many of them will be based on Android, and how many on Windows Phone 7.
Although at the moment HTC has the highest number of Windows Phone 7 devices from all handset makers (five of them: HTC HD7, HTC Mozart, HTC Trophy, HTC Surround and HTC 7 Pro), I’d say it will still ship more Android smartphones than WP7 ones next year.
It’s said that HTC has recently unveiled its 2011 roadmap in Taipei, Taiwan – unfortunately, only executives of partner companies were invited, so we don’t have any details on what exactly the smartphone maker is planning for next year.
