HTC One and the Double Dip case

Bad news might have come in your email in-box if you ordered the 32GB HTC One unlocked edition or the 64GB HTC One developer edition. HTC has sent out an email to those who ordered either model of the manufacturer's new flagship Android phone, to tell them that both units have been delayed. HTC did say in the correspondence that it will have the phones shipped out via overnight mail before the end of the month. No reason was given for the delay.

The HTC One had been delayed in most parts of the globe earlier when the company faced a shortage of components for the UltraPixel camertha. Instead of a global launch, the release of the device was limited to the U.K., Germany and Taiwan. Only today is the phone being made available for U.S. customers of AT&T and Sprint.

Also delayed, according to the email from HTC, are the free Double Dip cases that have been in such demand, they will now be shipped in mid-May, which is when the manufacturer expects to receive them.

"We have an important update about your order. Due to shipping issues with the 32G unlocked and 64G Developers Editions of the New HTC One®, there will be a slight delay in shipping your HTC One® to you. We expect to have your phone delivered to you, via overnight shipping, before the end of April. We’ll do everything we can to get it shipped to you as soon as possible.

Also, due to overwhelming demand, there will be a delay in shipping your free case. We expect to begin receiving the Double Dip cases in mid-May, and will ship them as soon as they’re available.

We understand the excitement and anticipation that comes with a new phone, and we are confident that the HTC One® will exceed that anticipation

Thanks for the support,

HTC ShopAmerica"

I was initially taken with the case as well. But then I started wondering how the case would interfere with using the One as a phone (the screen protector flap would seem to get in the way of using the One as a phone - where does it fold). I think a more traditional case with a kickstand in the back would be a better solution.

I think you guys are talking about two different cases. There is the Double Dip, without flap and stand, and the Double Dip Flip, that has all of that. I like the DD, but I think I am picking up an Incipio DualPro CF for mine tonight.

The double dip flip case is supposed to be closed when taking phone calls. It has slits for the speakers and microphone on the flip cover. It's not supposed to be flipped behind. The double dip flip looks premium and executive where as the double dip case looks construction worker grade rugged and I just hope it comes in many different colors later on.

Here's an alternative non biased title: HTC One 64GB developer edition and 32GB unlocked edition delayed due to OVERWHELMING DEMAND.

The demand indeed is overwhelming.
Kudos to HTC for finally making a phone people can't resist ;)

I must say the demand hasn't been too great where I work. We sold over 4 s3's on the day of the launch for the HTC One, but only 1 HTC One, which is the only one we have sold since. We have been hyping the ONE up too. I don't see the demand for it I guess.

can you state your real name and the carrier you work for just to validate your claims? or else you look like one of those pathetic people hired and paid by samsung in taiwan.,

I was about to buy this, but second thoughts i orderd the S4™

S600 is still an A9@A15, while the S4 is a pure A15™

Exynos is mostly stock ARM BIG.little A15. Calling the Krait an A9 shows a fundamental lack of RISC architecture.

So you should be rooting this and overclocking the Cpu to 2.2Ghz™

Rooted by 5 PM yesterday, but no overclock. It doesn't need it.

Well, as much as I hate to see the word "delay", it doesn't mean that the whole situation is HTC's fault. I mean, which company wants to delay its hot product? It probably is because component shortage, which is out of HTC's control. Or shipping/custom delays.

or maybe Samsung stopped hiring students and start to pay component providers/custom officers to delay the phone. Because they are so scared that they finally have a match now.
