After facing a number of issues with supply shortages, HTC has released a statement promising general HTC One availability in the U.K., Germany, Taiwain and all across Europe next week with North American and Asia-Pacific to get the device before the end of April.

Here’s the statement in full:

“HTC has seen unprecedented demand for and interest in the new HTC One, and the care taken to design and build it is evidenced in early reviews. The new HTC One will roll out in the UK, Germany and Taiwan next week and across Europe, North America and most of Asia-Pacific before the end of April. We appreciate our customers’ patience, and believe that once they have the phone in their hands they will agree that it has been worth the wait.”

The delay really isn’t that bad, but it does give the phone less time to gain traction before the Galaxy S4 hits stores. On the other hand, HTC seeing “unprecedented demand” and interest in the HTC One sounds promising. Hopefully the device will prove to be a formidable competitor against Samsung’s behemoth, the Galaxy S4.

Which device are you planning on getting? An HTC One or a Galaxy S4? Let us know in the comments!
