HTC's 2nd Android phone in April; 3rd enroute

HTC 3rd Android Phone

HTC on Monday told the Economic Daily News that the company is already developing its third phone based on Google's Android platform. The smartphone producer's president Peter Chou provides little extra information about the phone itself but reveals the company is well into its efforts on Android phones, with the second model due as soon as April. Both should lead to the open-source OS being a "growth driver" for HTC next year compared to the company's usual stable of Windows Mobile phones, he says.

Additionally, Chou reiterates that he expects to sell one million T-Mobile G1s in 2008 alone despite having just over two months in which to sell the devices worldwide. The figure also represents a high amount given the relatively small sizes of the national T-Mobile carriers asked to pick up the phone versus the larger carriers that support rival phones, such as AT&T and the iPhone.
