HTC boosts Touch Diamond shipments by 50%
HTC has announced that they will be boosting shipments of their upcoming Touch Diamond handset by 50%, in anticipation for the likely demand for the product.
Originally planning on shipping 2 million, after the increase that means they are expected to ship roughly 3 million units.
HTC head Peter Chou said that the original Touch handset took 11 months to sell 3 million units but he believes that the Touch Diamond will only take 7 months to sell that same volume.
Look for the Touch Diamond to hit beginning Europe next month and spread to the rest of the world in the second half of this year.
