HTC today indicated that the launch of its HTC One smartphone will be delayed due to supply chain problems. "HTC has had difficulty in securing adequate camera components as it is no longer a tier-one customer," said an unnamed HTC executive to The Wall Street Journal. The company originally intended to launch the device in 80 countries by the end of March. The component problems, which also include the metal casing for the device, are going to prevent HTC from meeting that original March target. "We...are working tirelessly with all of our channel partners to ensure that we can fulfill as many orders as possible. We will start fulfilling pre-orders by the end of March in certain markets and will roll out to more markets as we approach April," HTC Chief Marketing Officer Benjamin Ho said in a statement. HTC's U.S. carrier partners, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile USA, have yet to announce launch dates or pricing for the HTC One.

Well that just sucks

really sad news for HTC... to longer be considered a top tier manufacturer has got to be hard blow to morale in addition to all the other short comings that they have had as of late
They bring a lot on themselves. The One X was a screwjob to consumers, with its' crippling of multitasking, early model hardware problems, and complete lack of support. My GS3 comes in today. Hope I'm happy with it.
