The revenue numbers for June show HTC hitting a healthy $741 million in revenue. This figure shows the meteoric rise in popularity of the Android platform, and demonstrates the value of the 160,000 Android handsets Google is activating daily. This corresponds to figures announced by Google that demonstrated a 60 percent increase in daily Android phone activations in the month of June, of which a major portion would be HTC phones.


What is amazing is that just a year ago, HTC sold 80% of Microsoft's Windows Mobile handsets.

thanks kjk,

The Android OS has really come to maturity and some of the phones are just awesome.

Some of the newer phones are getting better reviews than the iPhone 4, which is not an easy task to accomplish.

Samsung and Motorola are next to release a batch of Android smart phones this summer. I will not be too surprised if they also receive significantly larger earnings in the following quarters.

I got to see the screen of a Samsung Galaxy S today and compared it to my HTC Hero. Oh boy what a difference. The Galaxy screen is insanely bright and vivid. The Hero screen looked washed out in comparison.

Yes the Smasung Galaxy S is using the Super AMOLED screen which is suppose to be very nice.

While the Samsung is not getting the media attention that the Droid X, Evo, and iPhone 4 is getting, the Galaxy is ironicy a better phone than all three, spec wise.

Here is the specs that compares these phones and a few other
