HTC One Developer Edition delayed along with 32GB unlocked version

HTC One_Silver

Buyers who placed pre-orders for an HTC One Developer Edition were probably expecting to receive a shipping notification yesterday or at the latest today. Unfortunately, the lack of shipping notices raised suspicions of a delay that has now been made official by HTC. Emails have been sent to those who placed an order that reads:

Hello [HTC Customer]

We have an important update about your order. Due to shipping issues with the 32G unlocked and 64G Developers Editions of the New HTC One®, there will be a slight delay in shipping your HTC One® to you. We expect to have your phone delivered to you, via overnight shipping, before the end of April. We’ll do everything we can to get it shipped to you as soon as possible.

Also, due to overwhelming demand, there will be a delay in shipping your free case. We expect to begin receiving the Double Dip cases in mid-May, and will ship them as soon as they’re available.

We understand the excitement and anticipation that comes with a new phone, and we are confident that the HTC One® will exceed that anticipation.

Thanks for the support,

HTC ShopAmerica

The original plan was to have these versions of the HTC One shipping by the same day AT&T and Sprint had the device available for retail purchase. Now, potential buyers will have to wait a few extra days to get their device unless they are willing to pick up a carrier-locked version.
