HTC is back on the track of profitability, though not in the same manner as a year earlier but after a drought of several months, it is starting to boost sales. The sales results for the month of April are out and the Taiwanese company made sales of $1.06 billion which is 0.01 billion more than what it made in March this year.

The company released the new HTC One line of smartphones in April which clearly gave a boost to its monthly sales. The demand for new handsets is increasing and it is expected that the profitability will show an upward trend in the coming months.

Although the profitability is a little late arrival to the company is less than what it made in the same period last year, it is a welcome nonetheless. HTC made sales worth of $1.3 billion in April last year.

The line of HTC One brand is Android-based, an operating system that competes neck-and-neck with iOS from Apple, and the new shapes incorporated to the handsets has received quite a reception from every corner of the world. Moreover, most of these phones come with a faster quad-core processor, which was touted to be expensive but HTC proved otherwise.

The new Windows Phone-based Titan II is another hit on the pages of HTC’s register. The phone boasts the latest version of the mobile operating system from Microsoft and a stunning 16-mega pixel camera. Surprisingly, the company has managed to keep the price in the affordable bracket.

HTC sales, according to countless experts, are gradually increasing and are expected to increase in the coming months as the company releases its new line of Hero brand.

In other news AT&T is launching HTC’s new One X in the US. The smartphone is going to be LTE-enabled but with a dual-core processor instead of a quad-core one. Immediately, the phone has attracted opprobrium from customers on the bootloader that will not be unlocked.

HTC however, was clear in its stance on the new restriction that the decision is made on AT&T’s discretion. The smartphone manufacturer said in a statement earlier:

“HTC is committed to listening to users and delivering customer satisfaction. Since announcing our commitment to unlockable bootloaders, HTC has worked to enable our customers to unlock the bootloader on more than 45 devices over the past six months. In some cases, however, restrictions prevent certain devices from participating in our bootloader unlocking program. Rest assured, HTC is committed to assisting developers in unlocking bootloaders for HTC devices and we’ll continue to unlock additional devices in the future.”

AT&T is known for the restrictions it brings to its handsets and the customers are quick to acknowledge HTC’s statement. And since AT&T is involved here the customers should probably forget about official unlock of the One X bootloader ever, because the carrier is never going to allow it.
