HTC One might get delayed due to components shortage

Industrial sources suggest HTC is having a bad time with the HTC One flagship manufacturing. The latest reports claim HTC is capable of producing just 20% of the stock it's supposed to.

The massive cut in production is because of the shortage of two components - the voice coil motor and the camera module. Because of the camera module shortages HTC might ship only 800,000 to 1,200,000 One smartphones in the next couple of months.

Even though HTC promises to launch the phone on March 15, lots of markets might not get it before May (at the earliest). HTC has already declared the USA market as a major target, so if the rumors come true it's likely that other markets might not get the smartphone for months.

HTC already lost a huge part of its market share to other manufacturers and the latest financial results proved it's time for a change. It will be a real pity if component supplies are what prevent the HTC One from turning into the miracle HTC was hoping for.
