Stock will be available from thursday onwards in retail.. price has been confirmed nd u can prebook if u want to get it first bcoz stock will be very short due to high demand..
It will be coming in 2nd week of nov as per htc customer support centre. I do not understand why so much of delay.
Just now contacted htc support and seems like they also waiting for the official confirmation but approxiamtely it will be released on second week of this month it seems... tired of waiting too long though

Anonymous, 01 Nov 2014By which way u confirm me it has gg3 protection? Did u have hand on phon? Pls replyI checked many sites some says it has gg3 some says not but I find it very unlikely that HTC would not put gg3 protection to it's screen of a mid range product
Is is dual active sim or dual standby? Please suggest a dual active sim with good specification?
