HTC One will soon be available in multiple countries including UK, Germany and Taiwan. Even though HTC initially said that its new flagship device would be launched worldwide by the end of March, it seems this is not what’s going to happen.
We do not know the exact reason why HTC might not be able to launch the HTC One worldwide, but we do know that the company might not be able to do what it wanted to originally. HTC itself admitted that the release of the HTC One would be delayed in some markets and these regions will get the HTC One by the month of April. The good part is that HTC has clarified when and where will be the HTC One be launched.
HTC made a statement to Engadget that reads
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.

This does make sense as the mobile market today is very versatile, and there are already a lot of next generation smartphones in the market and consumers have a lot of options to choose from. Let’s not forget that now even Samsung has entered the battle of the next generation smartphones with its very own Galaxy S4. Even though HTC One is unique in its own way, the company has to take care and consider the potential competition from rivals like Samsung and Sony.[/two_third]
Unprecedented demand for and interest
Even though HTC One might not have a global release, we still expect the company to come up with a strategy using which it will be able to compete against all the other high end smartphones in the market.
