    Strange story: On April 5, 2013, I tried to buy an HTC ONE Developer Edition. Yes, I’m in Canada and, yes, I knew they were available only in the U.S. However, I tried anyway, knowing I would have the unit shipped to a good friend who works for one of my customers in New Jersey.

    I placed the order and, lo and behold, I got a confirmation back from HTC saying the order was processed. Woohoo! Sadly, though, my excitement was premature. About an hour later I decided to check my online status and noticed that the order was cancelled. Oh, darn!

    I called HTC in the U.S. to ask why they just suddenly cancelled the order without notifying me as such. I found out later that I was speaking to the customer service manager. Anyway, I got off the phone without success … so I thought.

    Two days ago, April 19, I get an email from HTC saying my order for the Developer Edition may be delayed a bit. I thought, what?! My order? What order? I called HTC yesterday, and a very helpful guy said that the manager at the time reversed the decision to cancel the order, and my original order was re-instated.

    Well, it’s scheduled to arrive at my friend’s workplace tomorrow morning. I’m going to have him ship it to me by UPS overnight, so I should have it Tuesday morning.

    One problem, though. What the heck am I going to do with the HTC ONE I picked up from Rogers on Friday?

    Ahh, such problems. (smirk)

    • monsterduc1000

      Take it back. You should have two weeks to return it.

    • Peter

      Yes, I could take it back, and might very well do that; however, it’s been rooted. Then again, I’ve rooted phones before and taken them back without a problem. I’ll make my decision later this week. Perhaps I’ll just sell the developer edition on eBay. I have no doubt I’ll get much more then the actual cost. We’ll see.

    • Gohy

      You just described my experience exactly. except I ordered it myself to ship to my PO box in the states. It is on route as we speak

    • Peter

      Great news! My US customer in NJ got it this morning. They will ship UPS RED overnight, so I should have it tomorrow morning.

      UP-DATE: April 23 – Got it! However, to my surprise, it’s still S-ON. I would have thought the Developer Edition would be S-OFF in addition to it being SIM & Bootloader unlocked.

  • Marc Young

    Tried to buy this phone today from Telus and they wouldn’t sell it to me outright. Hopefully I can win one instead.

    • Zany

      You know that philosophy of them offering it outright on their website and the stores refusing to sell it is bogus. If they are not willing to sell it, they should not advertise it.

      Has anyone ever looked into bringing litigation against companies that do this for false advertising?

  • Fallyn

    I’ve been following this phone forever. So want.

  • tina.f

    wow amazing just called about my 6 month old phone that is now broken they dont care that I need it asap seeing as I have a special needs son and the school needs to reach me ..yup and who can afford a new one Not me like on FB follow on Twitter tweeted and we are connected on G+ and what an amazing opportunity

  • Gershwin Cross

  • Salinger

    I was just playing with a live demo unit at Best Buy today. Without a doubt, the most beautiful phone ever. It is just a joy to hold and use. Anyone who hasn’t had a chance to at least try one out, should really do so. I love my Nexus 4 and can’t wait to be among the first to get the Key Lime Pie update, but man, the One is just gorgeous. It’s the first time since December I’ve felt any temptation to switch phones.

  • Edward Smith

    I’m ready :D

    POSTED ON FACEBOOK AS WELL.
    HOW FUNNY. Today, as it was, I decided to clean out my car. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, which mind you was a pleasant change from the harsh reality of winter, and the sun was beating down something fierce (relative to what I would be used to.)

    There I was, sitting in the drivers seat perched back as far as I could, trusty Nexus 4 in hand. I got up out of it to take away the collected garbage when my nexus 4 released itself of my grip. This was a strange occurrence, as I rarely drop my phone, if ever at all. I stood helplessly, as my Nexus dropped almost in slow motion towards the beckoning gravel below. It must have been from 50cm off the ground. It hit the ground with a blood-curdling thud, and slowly glided across. I saw it slide across the road, and I knew, oh I knew that there would be thousands of tiny little scratches. I, however, hoped for the best. I bent down, and picked it up, turning it around.

    Fear turned to reality as I saw a spiderweb of scratches crawl across the surface. Glass was even missing in places. This, however, wasn’t hard to swallow. I had almost immediately grown accustomed to the idea of browsing the internet and such with a cracked screen. I was okay with it, I would live.

    The shock however came as I turned on the screen, only to realise that no touch would be registered. The digitiser broke. My Nexus 4 is no longer functional, and I am at a greater loss because of it. Pain is relative, and having something that has developed such strong ties to my daily life ripped from it’s bonds will be shocking to say the least. Maybe I need it, to help me disconnect myself from this false reality. Maybe I don’t, and will win this HTC one. Either way, throwing my hat into the ring in hopes that I might have a minute chance.

  • AKA_GodinGal

  • ronit chotlani

    In a world of plastic Androids, the HTC One stands out. It’s different – a gorgeous-looking slender device with chamfered edges and a slightly curved back that lays in the hand almost organically. It’s extremely ergonomical and even though it’s a big phone, it is comfortable to hold and operate.
    .I really, really like the HTC One. I’m a sucker for beautiful
    hardware, and this device is one of the best-designed smartphones I’ve ever used.
