HTC One Interest Sounds Strong as Retail Availability Looms

HTC may have faced some unexpected delays in getting the One to market, but will that negatively affect the phone’s popularity? Don’t bet on it. In spite of any issues, interest in the HTC One is reportedly quite strong, and even in the US, where the One won’t arrive until well into next month, pre-registrations for orders are said to number in the hundreds of thousands.

Sure, those numbers don’t mean much when we’re talking about Apple’s millions and millions of iPhones, but for HTC, that’s a big deal. The One has become a bit of a make-it-or-break-it product for the company, and a successful retail launch could help move HTC’s fortunes to a bit more stable ground. When we also factor in interested buyers who just aren’t the sort to pre-register for a smartphone, HTC could be looking at demand in the millions.

Still unsure about the HTC One? You’ll want to check out our in-depth review, which takes a long, hard look at the phone’s software, hardware, and whether it delivers on all the hype.
