HTC, maker of the G1 and the upcoming Magic, is currently the only "real" player in the Android game. No other bigwig company has officially announced anything so it should be no surprise to us that HTC is quite smitten with our Android.

How smitten? Well, even in our current economic state, reports show that HTC has increased their workforce by 46% and it wouldn't be a far off guess that most of the new workforce will revolve around Android.

Even more so, an analyst speculates that HTC will release FIVE new Android phones this year. We're definitely crossing our fingers for that to come true! What do you guys think? Will HTC become the most important Android phone maker? Or is it already?
