HTC One due next week in UK, Germany and Taiwan

While HTC first announced that its HTC One smartphone would launch worldwide by the end of March, the company later admitted that the Android-based device would be delayed in some territories to sometime in April. Today, HTC clarified where and when the HTC One will appear first.

In a statement sent to Engadget, the company said:

The new HTC One will roll out in the UK, Germany and Taiwan next week and across Europe, North America and most of Asia-Pacific before the end of April. 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.

The statement added that the company has seen "unprecedented demand for and interest" in the HTC One. It's no secret that HTC has a lot riding on this particular smartphone as it seeks to take away some of the attention from Samsung, which has become the leader in the Android phone market with the Samsung Galaxy S series.

Of course, Samsung just announced the Galaxy S4 but the US and UK versions will have the Snapdragon 600 processor inside, which will be the same chip inside the HTC One. Other versions of the Galaxy S4 will have Samsung's own eight-core Exynos 5 processor.

I'm an iPhone fan myself... since having owned BlackBerry, HTC before
And I'm serously considering getting this HTC One when my current contract expires (halfway 2013).
I'm now on an iPhone 4S, and I'm doubting between iPhone 5S (when it comes out) and this HTC One.

I just don't like the plastic feel of the Galaxy, that's the only thing that puts me off...

It looks really nice but the GS4 seems to be a better all-round phone. My current phone is an HTC Sensation and I have to say I've been rather underwhelmed by it, particularly with how slow HTC is to release Android updates.

I've had a bad taste left in my mouth from HTC. I had the HTC Hero, one of Sprint's flagship HTC Android phones when Android was just coming out. And while I'm sure most of my problems with it were due to the horrible way Android was when it started... But the phone itself was just shoddy in my opinion.
Sense was just boring and awful. I'm more of a minimalist, and even find touch wiz to be a little too much. But between the 2, I'd take TW over Sense.

Yup, positive. The big docking bar with border, horribly designed icons, and other things about Sense , I just can't stand.
Touch Wiz isn't perfect either, but I find that I enjoy it more so than I did with Sense. Touch Wiz at least has better "easy access" icons through the drop panel at the top and a few other little features that Sense lacks. TW is also extremely smooth, at least on the GS3. I'm sure Sense can get smooth with a great powered phone, but I have yet to see it.
Though, I don't use either now, as I have Nova Launcher EX going, and enjoy the customization I get with it.
