Taiwan scores big with handsets this year

taiwan Mobile handset production in Taiwan is currently up 82 percent from last year and the first quarter of next year is forecast to see a 150 percent increase over the first quarter of 2007.

This growth is thanks in large part to device manufacturer HTC’s popular handsets and a little upstart device called the "iPhone" (whatever that is). The value of devices shipped out of Taiwan not only broke the billion dollar mark for the first time, it got up to almost $1.5 billion.
