HTC One flagship delayed thanks to supply issues

HTC One flagship delayed thanks to supply issues Last month, HTC made a big show of unveiling its next flagship, the One, a powerful device with high-end specs and the latest version of its Sense user interface.
This week, the company has admitted it has to delay the phone due to supply issues.

One exec even went as far as to say that the company is no longer a "tier-one" customer and therefore has issues securing adequate supplies for big launches. Says the exec: "The company has a problem managing its component suppliers as it has changed its order forecasts drastically and frequently following last year's unexpected slump in shipments. HTC has had difficulty in securing adequate camera components as it is no longer a tier-one customer."

The phone was set for a March launch, but will now "hopefully" launch in April. The delay may be another nail in the coffin, especially since Samsung just announced the Galaxy S4 to much fanfare.

HTC One has a 4.7-inch LCD with 1080p resolution and a massive pixel density of 468ppi.

Under the hood is a Snapdragon 600 SoC that includes a quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz and LTE. The device runs on Android 4.1 with HTC Sense 5, has 2GB RAM, 32 or 64GB internal storage, GPS and GLONASS, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and a large 2300mAh battery.

HTC=No thank you!!!

See let me explain what happened with my last HTC phone Which didn't go well see the phone worked excellent and i do mean excellent except HTC Loves to rig hidden nasty's into there phones like when you tell a HTC phone to not use data or cellular network to run a game or app but to use wireless only you find out that the phones apps will automatically change the setting turn back on the data and cell network to dial home and waste your data plan even worse for HTC Owners you might want to turn off roaming as well because if you dont guess what it uses data every time it passes a cell tower talk about data hog the worst thing as well watch out for HTC phones that are on sale only the phones that eat data plans go on sale for 19.99 with a new contract and you will end up with a 230.00 + phone bill for one phone and that doesnt include taxes
