HTC aims to ship 60 Million handsets in 2011

HTC apparently has big plans for 2011 according to sources close to the company. We already know that the samrtphone’s market growth is exponential and that many companies are expecting to ride this wave to succes (remember Microsoft’s early 30 Million windows Phone 7 sales forecast for 2011).HTC has supposedly informed its suppliers that it will need parts for 60 Million handsets in 2011 (compared to 20 Million in 2010):

HTC executives revealed its roadmap for 2011 while the company was holding a summit with more than 200 executives from over 100 suppliers of handset parts and components recently in Taipei, the sources indicated.


Now the question is: Whats is the actual breakup between Windows Phone 7 and Android devices.
