HTC soars on Android and more

HTC’s big bets on software, branding and Android are paying off. The company today announced sales during June were up a record 67 percent. Sales for the entire second quarter were up 58 percent to $1.9 billion.

HTC’s smartphone business began on the Windows platform, but it’s now the largest manufacturer of phones based on Google’s Android software.

The company is based in Taiwan — where its stock hit a 52-month high today — and has its U.S. headquarters in Bellevue and software development center in Seattle.

Maybe now’s a good time for HTC go ahead with its plans to list its stock in the U.S.
