HTC One production to double in May

HTC One production to double in MayThe HTC One’s head start over the Samsung Galaxy S4 was hampered somewhat by delays, supposedly caused by production issues pertaining to the handset’s unique rear camera.

The good news is that the issues have reportedly been overcome, and the Taiwanese manufacturer is set to go into production overdrive, with twice as many HTC One units pumped out in May than in April.

That’s the story according to ZDNet’s Kevin “KK” Kwang, who in turn credits Focus Taiwan.

Jack Tong, president of HTC North Asia, is said to have yelled: "Our capacity is expected to rise significantly starting from mid-May. We are optimistic about our high-end sales during April and June.”

HTC One production will supposedly rise further still in June, in order to accommodate “strong demand”.

Ah, nothing like a bit of good news for a change. I was messing around with an HTC One today, as it happens. She’s one sexy beast. If I had to use an Android phone...

HTC One specs include a 4.7in 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, and an UltraPixel rear camera (technically 4MP, but, like, way better than that number implies).

This debacle will cost HTC dearly, methinks.
My buzz-o-meter picks up a lot of low murmur where there was happy humming.
