HTC expects to sell 2 million Diamond units this year

HTC DiamondI think we all (or at least most of us) agree the newly announced HTC Diamond rocks. It’s not just the look of the device — it’s also the specs (gorgeous VGA screen) and that ultra-cool UI that makes me want one. So I wasn’t surprised to learn HTC plans to sell 2 million of these this year. As a matter of fact, they already got Taiwan-based Chunghwa Telecom — which BTW plans to sell a total of 200,000 HTC smartphones in 2008 — to order about 20,000-30,000 Touch Diamond handsets.

And if Taiwanese mobile operator wants 30K units, how much will be enough for Vodafones, Oranges, T-Mobiles, AT&Ts and Verizons of the world? For the record, Taiwan has a population of about 23 million people.

HTC has shipped a total of 2 million HTC Touch smartphones and pushing the same number of Diamonds doesn’t sound like a problem. Any thoughts?

    I think they will may have some toruble at first but should get atleast near their goal. 2 million seems alittle high but then again, it is a great looking and highly anticipated phone. But I can see them hitting this goal and i wish them luck!

    The Touch sales number is out of date.

    HTC recently announced that the original Touch has now sold three (3) million.

    That’s 3 Touches for every 5 iPhones. Not bad, without any advertising or loud fan base.

    On the negative site, it has a limited connectivity. This would turn off many serious users who need reliable high speed data and phone connections.
