It seems being quietly brilliant also means making a lot of incredible phones, because that's the only thing that can explain the latest headline. According to a newly released reports, HTC has now taken the top spot, passing Samsung and even Apple, as the number one smartphone manufacturer in the US of A. The company has been putting out hit phones, and has finally reached a remarkable achievement. This report was done by Canalys, who released it on Monday saying HTC shipped 5.7 million own-brand smartphones and another 700,000 T-Mobile-branded handsets in the U.S. last quarter to take the top spot with 6.4 million total devices shipped. Samsung, who was previously top, shipped only 4.9 million smartphones in the U.S. last quarter according to Canalys, and Apple didn't fall too far behind with 4.6 million iPhones shipped.
This is great news for the company that made the first 3G phone, first Android phone, first WiMax phone, first big screen phone, and more recently, first LTE phone.
