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.
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,
