HTC to ship 13.5 million handsets in Q3

HTC to set record third quarter sales thanks to new Android and Windows Phone 7 smartphones

HTC has announced it intends to ship 13.5 million handsets during the third quarter of 2011 having revealed record figures for Q2.

Shipping 12.2 million smartphones during the second quarter, just 4.5 handsets less than Nokia, formerly the highest handset distributor in the world, HTC has said it intends to continue its rapid growth and post the lofty Q3 figures that would mark a 98 per cent year-on-year growth rate.

Having made its name shipping high-end Android handsets, HTC reportedly now sees 30 per cent of its product sales made up from its range of Windows Phone 7 touting devices, a range that is set to be expanded in the coming weeks with a mooted 12-megaxpiel camera boasting smartphone set to land alongside the WP7 Mango update.

HTC’s increased sales are set to be driven by its latest flagship handset the 1.2GHz dual-core HTC Sensation and its first 3D capable device the HTC EVO 3D. With the HTC EVO 3D being delayed until September mobile network provider Vodafone has revealed it has dropped its plans to stock the 3D phone marking a major blow to the Taiwanese manufacturer.

Does HTC make the best smartphones on the market or does the likes of the Sensation fall short of Samsung’s Galaxy S II and Apple’s iPhone 4? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
