October HTC revenues are up

HTC, the Taiwanese cellphone manufacturer that uses the Windows operating system on its handsets, said today that it recorded strong revenues during the month of October.

I reported this week that the company was investing heavily in its Bellevue offices to meet strong demand in the U.S. The demand is evident from its revenue figures in October.

The company said it had revenues last month of $326.7 million, a 25 percent increase over the same month a year ago when it recorded revenues of $261.7 million.

For the 10-month period ended in October, the company had revenues of $2.66 billion, a 62 percent increase over the same period in 2005 when its revenues totaled $1.64 billion.

No wonder it said it was trying to hire an average of five to six employees a week in Bellevue.
