For everyone in the U.S. outside of Verizon Wireless, the HTC One was been officially delayed from being released. HTC has yet to reveal just what exactly is holding the device up from being in the hands of U.S. consumers, with rumors pointing at the issue being HTC no longer being considered a “tier one” customer. Today, the company sent out a note with an updated timeline when we could except the HTC One to be released.
“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,” says an HTC spokesperson. “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.”
So for the U.S., the long doesn’t seem to be that bad as those who want an HTC One will be able to have it prior to the end of April. That is – unless you really want the HTC One and are willing to spend some extra cash in order to import it. Although, a month-long wait really isn’t that terrible.
