Thanks to Android, HTC sales in May reached $1.42 billion, more than double last year’s total

HTC has doubled its sales in 1 year by selling android phones, it shows how smart the managers of HTC are.
HTC originally had a partnership with Microsoft to implement WP7 on its hardware, when HTC implemented Android, Microsoft sued HTC due breaking the agreement.
Finally HTC insisted on using Android and agreed to pay $5 fine to Microsoft per Android device sold. Microsoft has received millions of dollar from HTC so far due to this fine.
In fact Microsoft has made more revenue from Android compared to its own mobile solutions ! Microsoft should be a big fan of Android now.
Current position of HTC puts Nokia partnership with Microsoft in question , when Nokia chose WP7 for its smartphones , Google made an announcement calling Nokia’s decision a big mistake.
Is Nokia wise enough to pay millions dollars of fine to Microsoft like HTC did and implement Android ? We should wait and see 🙂
All of this are very bad news for Apple. no company likes to see its competitors having 100% revenue increase in just one year.
I can see the comments of disappointed Apple Lovers all over the web now , begging Apple to do something , like this one :

Please Apple put some effort in your next phone. Otherwise i have to buy one of these HTC products too.

Its time to say goodbye to iOS and iPhone and switch to Android 🙂
