HTC reports Q2 revenues up 58.5 percent

HTC‘s second-quarter revenues reached TWD 60.53 billion, up 58.5 percent from the year-earlier period. June revenues amounted to TWD 23.86 billion, up 66.7 percent year-on-year. Second-quarter net profit at the smartphone maker rose to TWD 8.64 billion from TWD 6.51 billion a year earlier. HTC said results in Q2 and June were better than expected and at record highs, showing good execution of its brand and scale strategies.

This is the direct consequence of the recent releases of their cutting-edge smartphones like Evo, Desire and HD2 which run the powerful OS Android. Google confirmed recently it is now activating 160,000 Android phones a day, up from only 100,000 a day in mid-May—indicating a monthly growth rate of 60 percent.

Motorola: Sales down a third

rkr While market leader Nokia boosted its revenues by 67% in 2007, the handset sales of Motorola dropped in 2007 by one third. This mainly due to a poor product portfolio where their two cash cows Razr and Rokr models have not been generating enough revenues anymore. Understandable for me, with their antiquated user interface compared to SonyEricsson, Nokia or Samsung… not to mention the UI of the iPhone. As a consequence the appearance of the slim Razr alone is not enough and customers change their handset preferences. Motorola now expressed its indication to develop a fresh product portfolio which is much needed!
