HTC One is experiencing a major logistical nightmare with the shortage in components that are used to make its Ultrapixel camera. For this reason, the HTC One will not be launched by Verizon anytime soon. Furthermore, it will only be delivered to the carrier after all other US carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint have all received their HTC One units. Talk about a major delay!
HTC also has not revealed a specific date of launched. What was originally slated on March 15th was moved to the 29th, and who knows when? Some see this as a move to possibly dispel residual Samsung Galaxy S 4 hype, since the Korean device will be launched a day before.
Verizon might also prevent losing HTC clients by launching other phones by the manufacturer instead. There are talks that it might introduce the HTC One as a Droid device. It appears that Verizon will not go without offering some kind of an HTC flagship that has an Ultrapixel camera and the works.
