One million Googlephones expected in '08

HTC (nearly) doubles forecast

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Google's Android platform appears to be a much hotter seller than first anticipated by HTC, maker of the T-Mobile G1 phone.

The Taiwanese handset manufacturer is almost doubling its G1 shipment expectations for the year. HTC believes it can ship about one million G1 phones by the end of 2008, upped from figures of around 600,000 units made earlier this year. The upped figure comes from HTC's CEO Peter Chou in a report by Digitimes.

HTC also revised the company's forecast for Touch Diamond shipments this year to three million units instead of two million.

Chou claims HTC's business hasn't been impacted by the global economic recession and doesn't have plans to lay off staff, according to Digitimes. He added HTC has plans to purchase a US handset design company, but wouldn't reveal the name of the firm. ®
