Ouch

Talking abou the latest delays to HTC’s One:

The executive added that “HTC has had difficulty in securing adequate camera components as it is no longer a tier-one customer.”

That’s got to hurt.  The HTC One would be pretty high up my list of Android phones, probably just behind the Nexus 4 and some way ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S4.  It looks to be a very well designed phone, with industrial design meant to attract potential Apple iPhone customers.  However, there’s a big difference between making a well engineered pre-production device and shipping millions of them to the same quality standards and making money on them.
