the s4 fan boys are getting really annoying now. Unbelievable. Samsung fan boys are the biggest losers here. Bar none.

It was rushed so that they would be the first to use the S600. Now they pay.
Slow and steady wins the race.

And they wonder why HTC's market Shares has plummeted 44%, the HTC one was supposed to be a bit of a new thing, but with this and the fact that even this new phone still lacks basics like micro sd and removable battery, the galaxy s3 will continue to sell well and the s4 will destroy the current competition, the sony experia z is a fantastic phone, but the competition is still only a 2 way horse between apple and samsung

Not good news.
The haters will be happy

I hope they (HTC) don't favour one market over another. This needs to be a global phone unlike the DNA and Butterfly (which were good and would have sold well globally).

They should also be pushing their other live handsets.
Cutting deals with the carriers.

They need to get their brand presence back.
I don't think a single day has gone by where I haven't seen a Sony Xperia advert somewhere.

Well my pre-order still has a week (if not I want a temporary one X+) That would be good marketing from HTC and their carriers. Lets face it it's now been made redundant anyway.

Becuase of the Size and spec and battery, if Sony brought the ZL to the UK I might have to jump ship.

Lets face it I don't drop my phone in my drink and don't go swimming with it so don't need the Z.

But hopefully those guys a HTC will pull their fingers out....

Damn, I hope for HTC's sake this is not true! Poor marketing has been their achilles heel and no one ever doubted their quality but this would be very disappointing indeed and unlikely to help those sale figures!!

Let's hope for HTC that this is just a rumour, as they really need the HTC One to be a big hit for them, especially as they've actually spent money on marketing recently ie sponsoring the Champions League and Europa League

beautiful and the specs are superb. but the 4mp cam is a marketing suicide. most buyers don't see any advantage buying a 4mp over a 13mp cam. most people don't go throug specs sheets on the search for super pixels and reading or watching reviews explaining them what it is all about. this kind of users go to apple or samsung and now maybe sony with it's xperia z. another epic fail of HTC's marketing.

btw when will you release your phones in brazil?

Htc is already struggling. I had a high hope with this product. HTC one is still not available. I would have buy this phone if it was available. But, i'm just thinking should i wait for the Galaxy IV.....

HTC u had your chances... you are loosing it again!

First from Sri Lanka!

HTC one will be so dead if they dont have enough of stocks, nobody cares if they launch the Htc One or not.. RIP HTC, you are going to be officially dead by making this marketing stunt.
