Easing component restrictions mean more HTC One production

HTC has announced that it plans to double the production capacity for its flagship HTC One smartphone this month. The company says that its production capacity for the phone is increasing dramatically month over month as component supply issues continue to improve.

The tip on doubled production capacity comes courtesy of HTC North Asia president Jack Tong. HTC says that it also plans to increase production further in June to meet continued strong demand.

“Our capacity is expected to rise significantly starting from mid-May,” said Tong at a news conference in Taipei. “We are optimistic about our high-end sales during April and June.”

HTC blamed its recent lower-than-expected earnings on shortages for the HTC One in certain markets.
 
Tong also remarked that another device that HTC plans to help grow its revenue is the five-inch HTC Butterfly smartphone. The executive said sales for that particular device have increased 50 percent in Japan this month after the device was made free with a new contract.

The only way this could be exciting is if the title read,

"HTC to Double Production Capacity for "One" Flagship Smartphone This Month in Anticipation for a Verizon Launch"

HTC's droid DNA is a pretty kick ass phone.

The DNA is good. Smooth UI, awesome display, good camera, Sense is good, but proc is only ok, battery is meh, and storage is weak. I feel betrayed 'cos the display begs for 1080p video, but you can really only hold one movie at a time with any sort of app/photo/music density. So you better bring the laptop to swap movie files before the return flight.

I am prepared to pay cash this fall for the One if it comes to VZ even though I just got on the DNA 2 months ago.

PS- I hate the little door on the USB, but I don't have the courage to tear it off.

I never wanted to tear mines off either, but one day it just ripped off by accident, but I realized that I was still able to plug it back into the usb slot and it stays there as though nothing has happened. Just gotta be careful of not losing it but I'd wish they would use a soft plastic slider piece to cover the usb instead.

Or even better:

"HTC to Double Production Capacity for "One" Flagship Smartphone This Month in Anticipation for Launch with Stock Android"

Why? The One version of Sense is actually pretty excellent. I actually prefer it over stock android. Which isn't something I could say about earlier versions of sense, or touchwiz

I agree. Sense (and even Touchwiz) are entirely tolerable. People act like the stock Android GUI is so awesome when it isn't. My parents especially had a hard time when upgrading from Gingerbread to JB on the Nexus S, eventually upgrading to Galaxy S 3's and finding Touchwiz 'familiar' to the old Gingerbread launcher they were used too.

So it all depends. Touchwiz isn't efficient or customizable, but the aging population might like its simplicity, large icons, and overall "lack" of features. Remember, the iPhone is popular because it's simple, too.

Personally I prefer the pure android experience, and it also usually means faster updates.

My stealth black Sprint One arrived today.
I hate the fact it's sitting on my porch while I'm at work.

Try and steal it and the IRS will audit you.

I could care less what a phone ships with. Just offer an unlockable bootloader or an easy unlock method.

Yeah, one can ask why a high-end handset wants to be locked down as if the owner wants it that way?. HTC's unlock has always been cumbersome. Any vendor ought to like hack-ability on the phones because it would attract the right type of technical users who recommends to 20 others!.

And HTC, how about the microSD slot ?. Missing because you want to be Apple ?.


Please come to Verizon
