The HTC One was initially going to be released in early March in Taiwan, but the launch was hit by a series of unfortunate delays. The wait is now over, as the flagship phone has finally hit various retail stores in the country yesterday.

On location to capture the excitement were the folks at Mobile01. Bearing in mind that it was still fairly early in the morning, we can see from the pictures that the store was reasonably packed with HTC enthusiasts. The first lucky buyer was a 34-year-old man named Mr. Lin. Congrats!


For now, HTC is only selling the 32GB model of the phone, with the 16GB and 64GB variants expected to follow suit in the future. If you’re having trouble finding one in your area, it’s probably because only 6,000 units are up for grabs, or so according to the source. Well, color us surprised — not.

Fortunately, the next batch of units is supposedly due in the coming days.


Are you planning on purchasing the HTC One? Here’s our review to help make your decision a little bit easier.

          Zinna, it’s odd that Chinese citizens need a passport to visit the “province” of Taiwan.

        • Xavier

          being in Wikipedia, Taiwan is a country, independent, with military equipment from USA and France…not from China ! You need to read more and insult less, moron !

          Even in plain english from Wikipedia, this moron still denies ” On 30 September 2007, the ruling DPP approved a resolution asserting a separate identity from China and called for the enactment of a new constitution for a “normal country”. It also called for general use of “Taiwan” as the country’s name, without abolishing its formal name, the Republic of China.[70]”…suck it, MORON !
