No Canada: HTC One max will not cross the U.S.-Canadian border

No Canada: HTC One max will not cross the U.S.-Canadian border
If you live in Canada and have been mesmerized by the HTC One max, better turn your attention to the new NHL season or even curling. In a statement released on Wednesday, Taiwan based HTC said that its new phablet will not be crossing over the U.S. border to Canada. In its release, HTC noted that the models it offers in the Country are "sufficient for the Canadian marketplace". In other words, it seems that HTC's sales in the country aren't good enough to warrant the release of the 5.9 inch phablet there.

Later this week, the U.K. will be the first region to get the phone resembling the HTC One on steroids. Besides the 5.9 inch screen (offered with 1080 x 1920 resolution), the phone has a fingerprint sensor on back, a quad-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. For those concerned with HTC's usual low capacity batteries, a 3300mAh cell powers the phone. With Android 4.3 and Sense 5.5 pre-installed, the HTC One max should reach the states sometime early next month.

Unlike the 1960's, we might actually see a stream of Canadians heading into the U.S. to buy the HTC One max instead of the other way around.
