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

What hurts the most for HTC is that it has squandered a huge head start in the all important U.S. market over rival Samsung. With the Samsung Galaxy S 4 not expected to launch in the states until the end of next month, HTC had plenty of time to own the high-end market in the U.S. for a entire month and gather momentum over what could be the top selling smartphone for the next year.
Those of you who were going to buy the HTC One, will the time delay make you switch to another device, will you opt instead for the Samsung Galaxy S 4, or will you wait out the extra time so that you can snag the HTC device?
- Display 4.7" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 4 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1700 MHz
- Storage 64 GB
- Battery 2300 mAh(18h 3G talk time)

This literally lost my sale. I was waiting for this phone and was even going to buy it out of contract. But because of the delays, I bought an LG Optimus G for $350 off eBay. Yeah it's not as strong, but it's only a tidbit less than this phone. Still a quadcore, 2GB of RAM, gorgeous and great screen, etc... (oh and expandable memory).

Wait just a Damn minute! This same thing happened with the S3 and no one was trippin'! If your mind was changed that fast then all that shows is y'all only purchase these devices based on popularity and not on what the phone is capable of and how it can benefit your specific wants and needs.

Rydsmith is just the beginning of the lost sales. All Sammy has to do now is keep up the leaking of information about the S4. Expect to see a review up on PA before too long. Such potential. That just got squandered. Oh well.

thin glossy plastic at that price point is unacceptable. Waiting for HTC One.

I'm with verizon, and somehow, I'm glad we aren't getting the HTC One. HTC had the opportunity to TRY and make up ground against Samsung, and they blew it. with the release of the S4, Sammy will have 3 top tier smartphones on the market, selling like mad. I'm sure the S3 is going to get another boost in sales when it drops in price across the board (it's $99.99 on amazon wireless right now). I've had three HTC phones, and in 4 months, their won't be a 4th. Sammy is getting my money, be it the S3, S4, or the Note 2. good luck recovering from this latest SNAFU, HTC...

Thats even better for me now I get to try the s4 and HTC one side by side in the store and see which one I like best HTC don't need to be scared of Samsung all they have to do is advertise their product and let the customers decide what's better suits them and from what I see the HTC one looks like the better phone
