HTC has released an official statement cluing us into the current status of their One flagship’s launch around the globe. The good news for folks in the UK, Germany, and Taiwan is that the phone is on track to launch next week. The bad news for those in other areas of Europe and North America is that the phone isn’t scheduled to reach consumers until the end of April. Here’s the statement:
“HTC has seen unprecedented demand for and interest in the new HTC One, and the care taken to design and build it is evidenced in early reviews. The new HTC One will roll out in the UK, Germany and Taiwan next week and across Europe, North America and most of Asia-Pacific before the end of April. We appreciate our customers’ patience, and believe that once they have the phone in their hands they will agree that it has been worth the wait.”
Yes, that means those of us in the United States can’t expect to see the hot new handset for at least another month. A bit of a bummer considering all the hype surrounding the phone. Do HTC’s revised plans have any potential buyers out there reconsidering their next smartphone purchase?
