The release date is still aiming for late April, and hopefully they can hit that mark and at least launch before the GALAXY S 4 hits the streets. As that was likely their original plan.
Pointed out by Phandroid, Jason Mackenzie, HTC president for global sales and marketing states that the reaction from consumers has been fantastic, and that they’re poised for a big launch. Mackenzie went on to apologize for the delay of the handset, but assures us the wait will be well worth it. Who agrees?
