How about a little bit of positive news for HTC today? According to the Wall Street Journal, HTC has already sold 5 million units of the HTC One flagship smartphone. While this is about half of what Samsung has done with the Galaxy S4, it’s a commendable figure nonetheless.

“Orders are pretty good so far and are still more than what we can supply…This is partly due to the shortage of components. When the issue is resolved next month, we will have a better idea if it’s doing really well or not.” – unnamed HTC source

HTC has been plagued with issues as of late; recent reports have the company shedding multiple high level executives. Assuming the word of mouth and favorable reviews are fueling the HTC One we might assume a bit of momentum could build and lead to a slight rebound.
