The HTC One launched unofficially in the UK on the 15th. Been using it for a few days now. Incredible phone. The One has a better design and build quality. They’re both fantastic devices. I personally think it’s worth the wait but having it delayed like this is going to hurt them.
“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.”
Funny because “before the end of april” Counts as today and any day up until April 30th.. It doesn’t say it will launch in the end of april but before it! Plus HTC KNOWS the real competition here in the US is the galaxy line and i highly doubt they would release in Germany before the US based on that. I find this really hard to believe as they most definitely want to get the US devices out way before the Galaxy S4.
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.”
