HTC To Ship 8.5 Million Phones Through The End of 2010?

If the Commercial Times, a Chinese news outlet has this right, HTC plans to ship somewhere in the neighborhood of 8.5 million phones through years end. Part of their plan to take over the world hit this number is to launch six more devices before 2011 rolls around. We are of course somewhat positive that at least two of these devices are Android-based and showing up on T-Mobile, the HTC Vanguard and the HTC Emerald. Thanks to a leaked roadmap, rumors regarding these phones and T-Mobile are heating up and from what hear from our own sources, we aren’t seeing much that gives us reason to doubt these rumors. HTC does seem to be on the ball with device launches lately and Android has certainly propelled its sales but shipping 8.5 million phone is no small feat. Hopefully they have some great stuff heading our way!

      Dude, use some periods or something. I have no idea what u just said.

      • Johny

        Dude, Stfu

      • eddy

        He’s right Johny, use punctuation.

      • pimpstrong

        Breathe

  • En2Mente

    Im guessing those are the big rumored phones we been hearing about so much.

  • Davidohio

    Dude seriously. I don’t know where one sentence ends and one begins because you did not use any punctuation in your comment. Very annoying.

  • Chris

    IM A MYTOUCH CHAMPION AND RECEIVED A FREE MYTOUCH SLIDE. TOMORROW IS MY LAST DAY AND MY STORE MANAGER HAS ASKED ME TO GIVE BACK MY PHONE. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE IS ANY LEGAL DOCUMENTS THAT WOULD SAY I HAVE TO GIVE IT BACK. TWO EMPLOYEES WERE TERMINATED FROM MY STORE AND WERE ALLOWED TO KEEP THEIR PHONES (MYTOUCH 3G AND MOTO CLIQ)

    ANY OTHER MYTOUCH CHAMPIONS HAVE ANY IDEAS? NO ONE KNOWS A DIRECT ANSWER. NOT SPECIAL ACCOUNT CARE OR OTHER MANAGERS.

    P.S. I NEVER SIGNED ANYTHING!!

    THANKS

    • zee

      mr. manager what phone? oh the one i accidently left at the bar? on sorry i don’t have it. make sure u already recieved ur paycheck. u don’t wanna pay full price for tht phone.

    • http://tmonews dcb

      I am a manager with t-mobile and the Android champion for my market and I was not told anything about giving back the phone or that I was supposed to get my rep champions phone back….your manager may be mistaken

    • http://tmonews dcb

      Sorry…..missed that you were leaving….yes you are required to give the device back if you are no longer with the company….my apologies about the incorrect info

      • Chris

        Lol. Thanks man. Yeah i had to give the phone back. I wanted to take a little further and get documentation but after a while i stopped caring. About to start a new job i dont wanna risk anything.

  • jesse

    wow htc to ship 8.5 million phones yet they dont have enough supplies to make evos and incredibles.

  • Jimbo

    On the champion comment I am also a fellow champ and yes if u leave you got to give it back they do that in turn to help us and them if they gave it to us free we would still have to pay taxes:……also if you don’t give it back they will be billing you for it so just do the right thing

    • Chris

      I understand that. Im looking for something on paper about this. An ex mytouch champ was fired and was not required to bring back the phone or billed. Thats why im having a hard time agreeing with some people regarding this matter.

      • En2Mente

        Question, is it just a phone, or did it include a line of service? If so who is paying it?

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    David, not to kick TMoNews twice in one day (see my post under the other story about the Vibrant supposedly suffering from the same death grip as the iPhone) but this story is inaccurate.

    Mainly the problem I have with it is that actually HTC is projected to sell 8.5 million handsets in ONLY the 4th quarter or last three months of 2010.

    Your headline and story make it seem as though HTC will be selling 8.5 million units for the entire year. Change one word to “at” and the headline and story become accurate.

    Willi Teng of Digitimes actually said:

    “Smartphone vendor HTC is expected to launch six new devices in the US and Europe, possibly bumping up FOURTH-QUARTER shipments to 8.5 million units, according to a report by the Chinese-language Commercial Times.

    Citing industry sources, the report revealed that the Taiwan-based company will introduce in Europe the Vision dual-core, Android-enabled smartphone in October and the Mondrain, based on Windows Phone 7, in the same quarter.

    (AND RELEVANT TO T-MONEWS FANS THE ARTICLE WENT ON TO SAY):

    “For the US via carrier T-Mobile, HTC will roll out two Android-based phones, the Vanguard and Emerald, and an unspecified Windows Phone 7 model. AT&T, the country’s largest carrier, reportedly has also agreed to distribute an HTC Windows Phone 7 smartphone slated to hit the market in November.”

    Here is a screen capture of the story:

      You’re lame. You’re being critical about dumb things.

      • Wilma Flintstone

        it wouldn’t be him if he wasn’t. He blows alot of things out of proportion but thats the reason its Michael not Mike. See?

      • TMOprophet

        as with almost every post he makes

      • Craig

        and the problem with being accurate is????
        There is a world of difference between 8.5 million units in a year and 8.5 million in one quarter.

  • En2Mente

    They could say they expect to sale 100 million in one day, and I wouldn’t care. I’m more focused on the part about new phones coming to t-mobile.

  • Chris

    @En2Mente

    That part doesnt matter. It is my line of service that I am going to migrate away from an employee acct to a regular acct. Its just a phone issue and doesnt really have to do anything with any lines.

  • http://www.absolutefiction.com [rono]

    Let’s wish HTC to succeed. If they do, it will mean more competition and better phones from all makers, maybe lower prices here in the US, more sweat and paranoia from good ol’ Stevo, and probably a much better iPhone 5 for those who like fruit.

    Hopefully, one of those upcoming HTC devices will be a killer WP7 smartphone. Fingers crossed here.

  • Amanda

    I have a mytouch. I love HTC. I can’t wait to see what they come out with for android this year. I will definitely be upgrading at the end of this year. :)

  • Alex

    I will be sticking with my Nexus One until next March…That way I know I will get gingerbread update in a timely manner and then decide if htc finally has made a android device with stock ui. I love sense, but I rather not deal with it…

  • Drew

    Yep.. can’t wait for Tmo to get a high end HTC device. Something to kick ScamSung’s ass, cause I REALLY would like to have an option when I go to buy this November.

  • Alan

    When is the Touch Pro3 coming out?

    • Andrew

      for the time being, the touch pro 3 will be put on hold. It will come with Windows 7, but the first batch of Windows 7 phones will be all touch only phones.
