HTC has announced its projections for the second quarter, and they are aiming high.  HTC says it expects to sell 4.5 million handsets, with revenue to peak at 1.6 billion USD.  This is a pretty big jump from the 3.3 million handsets sold in Q1, and the company is ahead of market analyst expectations.  In today's ecomony, any earnings increase is nice.  This kind of growth is phenomenal, and HTC's CFO Cheng Hui-ming credits the increase to one thing -- the "growing popularity of the Android platform in Europe and the US.

Keep pumping out phones like the Desire, Legend, Incredible, EVO, etc. and the sky is the limit Mr. Hui-ming.  We all love stylish, top quality hardware that runs the best Mobile OS
on the planet, and can't wait to see what's next. [Financial Times via Engadget]
