It looks like HTC has a nice problem on their hands, the HTC Hero smartphone is selling so well, particularly in Europe and Asia, that it causing supply issues at HTC. According to Jack Tong, VP of Asia Pacific, tight production will not end until next month with positive sales momentum expected well into Q1 2010.
We are slowly seeing a number of manufacturers dipping their toes into Android. Acer recently announced its Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Acer Liquid smartphone and Sony Ericsson is expected to do the same shortly with its rumoured Xperia X3.
