HTC boasts strongest U.S. growth in years

HTC reported its first quarter earnings for 2015 on Tuesday, and the Taiwanese phone-maker did pretty well. The company pulled in a total of $1.328 billion in revenue, up 25 percent compared to Q1 2014.

The big news, however, is that HTC is finally starting to build some momentum with U.S. shoppers. The company claims it saw the strongest growth here since 2011, though it didn’t offer any specific figures. Meanwhile, the firm also reported gains in Europe, the Middle East and India.

HTC’s most recent quarter ended on March 31, so the results don’t factor in sales of the new One M9 smartphone. The company says it expects revenue to jump slightly in Q2 as a result of that launch, falling somewhere between $1.5 billion and $1.68 billion.

Overall, HTC looks a lot better off than it did just a year or two ago. Hopefully it can keep that momentum going, though some of the company’s recent decisions don’t exactly fill us with hope.
