HTC reports successful July sales, will use pocket change to acquire Dashwire


HTC‘s success has been skyrocketing since the release of the Nexus One and now stands as one of our favorite smartphone manufacturers. The Taiwanese-based company is definitely among the favorites for Android enthusiasts, and the numbers are there to prove it. HTC has just reported that their July sales add up to about $1.56 billion U.S. dollars (T$45.11 billion). This is an increase of more than 83% compared to July 2010. It’s also a slight improvement over the month before, which saw sales of T$45.05.

It comes as no surprise that this company is doing so well. HTC’s involvement with the Android platform has been outstanding. HTC has manufactured some of the most solid devices in the market, like the Nexus One, EVO 4G, EVO 3D, Sensation 4G, the myTouch series and the Thunderbolt (among many others). HTC’s repertoire is one of the widest out there, with low- to high-end devices for every major carrier.

While we might fear HTC’s success will eventually die down (as everything that goes up must do), it seems HTC’s fall is not coming anytime soon. In Q3 alone, HTC is planning to release up to 8 devices. This, along with Android’s continuing world-wide explosion, will contribute to HTC’s coming success (as well as that of other Android manufacturers).

The company also announced that its U.S. unit is planning to acquire Dashwire (cloud computing services company) for $18.5 million, in order to further improve its cloud services.

HTC still has great plans for the future. And with 550,000 Android activations a day (and growing), there’s no better time for manufacturers to invest in better devices and services. What do you guys think about HTC’s involvement in the Android movement? Are you pleased with them? Which is your favorite manufacturer? Will HTC’s sales increase as much in a year?
