It seems everyone wants a piece of the HTC One. The “unprecedented demand” for the phone – as well as the Ultrapixel shortages – has caused release delays in several markets, including HTC’s home turf of Taiwan. While the device will still hit stores this week, the stock apparently will be quite limited.
The bad news was revealed by HTC’s mobile operator partners in the country. As reported by Focus Taiwan, the execs of the telecom operators said that they have received shipments of the One handsets from HTC – mostly the silver 32GB models. However, the phone will only be up for grabs for customers on March 29.
For those who have pre-ordered the One in the first wave, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be getting it delivered this month. According to the carriers’ estimation, they might not able to serve all pre-order customers until the middle of next month.
