HTC might really have a legitimate reason to announce that pre-orders for the HTC One have exceeded their expectations and that more people in US have pre-registered for info and to purchase their flagship smartphone.
If anything, HTC truly needs plenty of similar news and encouragement since they have suffered a lot of set-backs last year and this year is no exception. The company is in a tough predicament following the delay of shipment and launch of its HTC One in various key markets. Because of this, it may have to launch very close to the Samsung Galaxy S 4's, which is quite a competition to beat.
Another likely rival is Sony's waterproof Xperia Z, which has been aggressively marketing its newest smartphone over Europe and Asia. Because of the delay in the production of components, the company will only be able to ship less than 300,000 units, which can easily push away potential HTC One clients who are not willing to wait too long.
Carphone Warehouse has made everyone extra-excited with the announcement that they will be giving away free 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2 for the first 2000 people who pre-ordered the Galaxy S 4. Although the Tab 2 is not the latest by Samsung under this category, there is no doubt that those who placed their orders first will really appreciate Carphone's promo and that no other mobile vendors in the country will be able to beat that offer.
Also, Carphone has not released pricing information for the Galaxy S 4 yet, but on average it will possibly go for £520, without contract.
The Galaxy S 4 was recently launched in a highly-publicized event in NY and it has broken records as the device that has the highest number of pre-registered units. Getting a phone that is as awesome as the S 4, along with a free Galaxy Tab, will just really blow anyone's mind away.
Starting April 16, U.S. Cellular subscribers will be able to preorder the Samsung Galaxy S4. It will have a 13-megapixel camera, run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and feature a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 series processor, or a 1.6GHz eight-core Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa.

The BlackBerry Q10 has been put up for pre-order by AT&T today, while T-Mobile now has it in stock. If you aren't familiar, the Q10 is the keyboard version of the Z10. It carries the same 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of system memory, 8-megapixel camera and 16GB of flash memory as the Z10. Both handsets run the new BB10 operating system but the Q10 will ship with the latest version, 10.1.
The main difference, however, is the keyboard and the display. The QWERTY board takes up plenty of real estate which only leaves room for a 3.1-inch AMOLED screen operating at 720 x 720 pixels.
Here's some cool features of the Q10:
- BlackBerry Hub - see your inbox from any app
- Classic BlackBerry Keyboard supercharged with BlackBerry 10 - Instant Action for quick access to apps and functions
- BB BalanceTM - work life and personal life, separate but equal
- BBMTM Video with Screen Share - share content and apps
