HTC One M9 goes on sale in Taiwan

HTC One M9 goes on sale in Taiwan
The plan all along was for the HTC One M9 to launch in HTC's backyard. But the date of the release, March 16th, had to be changed reportedly due to a software issue. Some said that the handset was having problems booting up, while others assumed that the problem had to do with the Snapdragon 810's alleged propensity to get a fever. After all, while running a benchmark test, HTC's new flagship had a surface temperature of 132 degrees fahrenheit.

But the good news is that HTC has sent out a patch that turns down the heat. A more recent reading of an HTC One M9 test unit showed the phone running at a much cooler 104 degrees fahrenheit, just two degrees higher than the HTC One (M8) ran during that aforementioned benchmark test.

So now that everything is copacetic with the HTC One M9, the handset is available for purchase in Taiwan, priced at the equivalent of $698 USD for the 32GB model. The 64GB variant, which is expected to be available at a future date, will be priced at the equivalent of $732 USD.

Last week, HTC Americas president Jason Mackenzie said that the phone would be made available in his region of the world starting on April 10th. He did say that individual carrier launches will depend on where and when inventory is shipped.


Thanks for the tip!
