The Taiwanese firm has become the fourth-largest maker in the world, helped by its connection to Android.
After mulling over which smart phone to buy for months, Seth Chapman decided against jumping on the iPhone, BlackBerry or Droid X bandwagons and instead went with the HTC Evo 4G.
And in much of the rest of the world. HTC, based in Taiwan, has quietly grown to the point where it has joined the ranks of the largest smart phone makers. It currently ranks fourth in the world, according to Gartner Inc. In North America, nearly 10% of people who bought smart phones in the first quarter of this year chose models made by HTC.
On Tuesday, the company reported second-quarter sales of $1.9 billion, up more than 58% from the same time period last year.
