HTC plans to ship 10 million 4G smartphones this year

HTC has announced three new 4G smartphones last week at CES 2011: Verizon’s HTC Thunderbolt (pictured below), AT&T’s HTC Inspire 4G, and Sprint’s HTC Evo Shift 4G.

More will surely be unveiled later this year, and that’s why the Taiwanese company hopes to sell more than 10 million 4G smartphones until 2012. Most (if not all of them) will be Android-based.

According to DigiTimes, HTC will sell 4G handsets not only via North America carriers, but also through “potential clients in Europe and Japan.”

Reportedly, in 2010 HTC shipped about 3.5 million 4G smartphones in the US, including 3 million HTC Evo 4Gs via Sprint, and 0.5 million T-Mobile myTouch 4Gs.
