Backed by strong demand for its new smartphones, including Windows 7 models, HTC made its sales in November hit another record high as global demand remained strong. As they announced that their November sales hit a record high. HTC posted $1.27 billion in sales last month, up 18.85 percent from October and up a mind-boggling 168.39 percent from November 2009. This even as the company deals with a shortage of Desire HD models.
Market observers noted that the company’s November sales were higher than a previous market estimate of NT$35 billion. They said that with the strong global demand likely to continue, it is very possible that the company will meet its goal of generating NT$100 billion in sales for the fourth quarter of this year.
Obviously the HTC juggernaut continues to roll, powered by the amazing success of phones like the EVO, Incredible, Desire Z and HD7. And with the holiday shopping season now upon us, look for December to be an even better month. In addition, HTC also expects its shipments to rise to 9 million units in the October-December period from 6.8 million units in Q3 when it recorded sales of NT$75.85 billion.
