HTC reports sales of $1.42 Billion
The success story of Taiwanese company HTC is good proof that Android as a platform is a good choice for phone and tablet manufacturers.
Reuters reports HTC’s sales for May reached $1.42 billion, which is more than double than the same month in 2010 and a big improvement from $1.35 billion in April.

The company recently posted its Q1 2011 earnings — 9.7 million units shipped, a 192% year-over-year increase, as well as revenues of $3.63 billion.
The Q2 forecasts of the company on the other hand predict a 103 – 113% year-over-year increase in shipments and a 97% year-over-year increase in revenue.
