Don't expect the HTC One in the U.S. until late April

0. phoneArena 22 Mar 2013, 12:37 posted on

HTC has completely squandered the head start it had over Samsung in the U.S. as the Taiwan based company has announced that the HTC One won't reach North America until the end of next month, around the same time that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 is expected to launch in the United States; the HTC One will debut next week in the UK, Germany and Taiwan...

ONE is always at the top and FOUR is below on it.

If Samsung can get their phone out here in the states before HTC it will definitely hurt them.

He did say the States. People in the US know what marketing is, quality isn't always the issue. I see it every day.

my sister work at T-mobile she said the employes are all excited about the HTC ONE and Tmobile is expecting it to be soldout from the first 2 weeks like when the HTC HD2 came out years back.

Well, of course it will be sold out because all the information indicates that HTC has serious problems of producing enough handsets. I expect that even in the countries that will be available, the availability will be initially limited. So all the fans will hurry to secure one item for themselves and the handset will be sold out immediately. However HTC needs desperately a large customer basis to make up for the lost market share and not just a handful of HTC fans that frequent this blogspot. And I'm afraid these customers will look elsewhere.

If I were in the market for a phone this year, I'd wait for the HTC One, the next Nexus phone, and the rumored Motorola "X" phone with Android 5.0. Quite the choice to make among those three and the Galaxy S IV!

how soon we forget about the likes of the Thunderbolt, EVO, and others. even the Rezound, which I still own, is supbar compared to the phones that were released during the holiday of 2011. the only thing HTC has consistently done over the years is make bulky, solid phones up until the last two years. form factor, they get plus points....everything else, they are behind the pack. and falling further behind. I'm sure the ONE will sell plenty, but they still won't be able to touch what Samsung has DONE with the S3 already.

I reserved an HTC One and have owned HTC One X and HTC 8x recently and I just received an email from HTC with a message from the president apologizing for the delay. Funny stuff.

Now hopefully Rogers manages to sneak a few into Canada before April so I can make some good money on Craigslist to fund my GS4 or Nexus 5.

If Apple wants to be pricks, they should just terminate their agreement with HTC now and put a sales ban on the HTC One before release. lol

Hint. There is a reason why I don't have the One X anymore and why I am placing the HTC One on Craigslist.

Sure this will hurt HTC. Samsung has the marketing mu$cle to push the GS4 and they will. the one may be the better phone, but htc will fall by the wayside.

If HTC ONE release late than Samsung S 4, all the best.

The only reason I was considering the One is because I want to switch my contract as soon as possible off T-mobile (contract ended 3/15/13), and they were coming out before the S4. I did want the S4 more, but would have probably ended up with the One just because I could get it before April.

Call me lame, but I love watching reviews of the ONE...I learn more and more about the phone. Every reviewer has spoke highly of this phone: zdnet, gsmarena, pocketnow, pocketlint, android authority, the verge, gottabemobile, cnet,oh yeah and phonearena lol

i love reading reviews as well (of course not biased ones) but this catastrophe must not happen to a flagship which wants to fight with S4, XZ and ...
agree?

Oh man I definitely agree with you on that. Especially because of the situation there in now. I am not going to lie I was bummed about it. But all I can do is wait now. And wait I will

I think HTC will be OK. The phone is worth the wait. Samsung has nothing on it. Those that contemplate of buying the One will wait a tad more. No biggie. And HTC will be producing this beast for the duration of the year only to be succeeded by the new One next year so there's really no worry. ;)

It was a toss-up for me HTC One or S4. I just need a new phone and was going to get whichever one is released first. I thought it would be the One...and was excited to finally own an amazing looking phone. Looks like, it will be close. I don't mind owning the S4, but for me the release date will be the deciding factor.
