Digitimes reports the details:
High Tech Computer (HTC) has announced revenues for the fiscal year 2008 (ended December 31, 2008) reached NT$152.56 billion (US$4.61 billion), with 28.65% on-year growth. Net income after tax was NT$28.68 billion, with a net EPS of NT$38.03 for the full year, according to the company.
Buoyed by the launch of new products, HTC posted revenues of NT$47.38 billion in the fourth quarter of 2008, rising 21.45% from the same period of 2007. Sales of HTC’s Touch Diamond-series models as well as Android-based G1 phones each met their targets, the company said.
Moving forward to 2009, HTC is aiming for revenue growth of around 20%. How are they going to do that? Well, the plans are to introduce somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 new devices. Some of the new smartphones will run on Windows Mobile, while others will boot up Android (Yes!). 2009 is shaping up to be a great year… Especially if you’re in love with Android.
