NEW YORK, March 22 HTC Corp said its
latest smartphone, the HTC One, will roll out in three
countries next week, but sales will be delayed in North America
and other countries in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
HTC, which originally said it would launch the phone in 80
countries in March, said in a statement on Friday that sales
would not kick off before the end of April across Europe, North
America and the Asia-Pacific region.
The smartphone maker has been under pressure from bigger
rivals Apple Inc and Samsung Electronics Co
The company said it has seen "unprecedented demand for and
interest in" the new smartphone.
"We appreciate our customers' patience, and believe that
once they have the phone in their hands they will agree that it
has been worth the wait," HTC said.
