HTC CEO Peter Chou increased the forecast for how many T-Mobile G1s it expects to ship in 2008 from 600,000 to 1 million. In addition, Chou said HTC expects to ship up to 3 million Touch Diamond phones by year-end, up from 2 million.
The G1 launched in the United States at the end of October and in the United Kingdom shortly afterward. A European launch is expected in the first quarter of 2009. The phone is facing more competition in an increasingly crowded high-end smartphone marketplace that now not only includes Apple's iPhone 3G but Research In Motion devices, including the BlackBerry Bold and BlackBerry Storm.
