Ouch: HTC shocks by forecasting extremely low sales Massive smartphone maker has shocked the world today, revising its Q4 forecasts lower, again.
The company cited weakening global demand and a huge uptick in competition as its main factors.

Revenue is now expected to come in at around NT$104 billion, down from its already lowered forecast of NT$125 billion.

If accurate, HTC will see no growth year-over-year, a huge disappointment to investors.

While smartphone demand continues to grow, HTC has seen increasing competition from Samsung and Motorola in the Android market, and Nokia now in the Windows Phone 7 market.

HTC will ship 12 million phones in the quarter, the first time it has seen a drop in shipments in 2 years.
