Given the rocky road that HTC  has traveled over the past 2 years, you can imagine why they hold most information–sales of their most recent flagship phone included–close to the vest. Speculation has been anywhere from 300,000 units to 750,000.

If 500,000 sounded about right, the Google Play Store is showing that at least 500,000 users have downloaded apps specifically for it. I don’t know about you, but those numbers don’t like, especially for a free app related to a company that’s not nearly in bed with Google as say, Samsung.

I know at least 2 people who’d purchased one aside from me. I’m enjoying it and think it’s world-class. Do the numbers add up? What do you think?
