1 million Google phones sold by end of year

After initially predicting 600,000 Google phone sales by year's end, the phone's maker, HTC, is now expecting closer to 1 million.

HTC, maker of the original Google phone, is boasting that demand is so high that sales will reach a million by the end of the year.

HTC's original sales forecast predicted 600,000 Google phones - launched in October - would be sold by the end of 2008. Peter Chou, HTC CEO, now believes that the number of sales will be a million units.

This number is still dwarfed by sales of the Apple iPhone 3G and RIM BlackBerry smartphones. Apple claims that nearly 7 million units of the iPhone were sold in Q3 2008.

HTC and Taiwan Mobile launched the Touch HD smartphone in Taipei today. Reports say that we should see the HTC Touch HD in the UK shortly. HTC representatives at the launch also could not give a time frame on when the Touch HD will launch in other parts of the world. Reports say the UK and Singapore will see the handset shortly.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
