Q4 gross margin will range from 32-33%, while the operating expense ratio will reach 16.5%-17.5%, unlike 13.9% in Q3, thanks to a higher marketing budget for the quarter. In Q3, HTC reached a total of 2.8 million units shipped, about 200.000 units less than in Q2 and 400.000 more than in Q1.

HTC also posted revenues of $12.7 billion for October, 7.4% more sequentially, but 20.8% less than in 2008. The Taiwanese company claims that the US market will provide growth, while Europe will remain weaker.

    The European market will always remain weak in comparrison with the US market. You can't compare the two because they have different functional systems. The US market is more dynamic and fluid compared to the European market which is more cautious and rigid.
