The HTC One will finally begin rolling out next week, at least in the UK, Germany and Taiwan. Buyers in Europe, North America and "most of" the Asia-Pacific can expect to see the device launch before the end of April, according to an update HTC provided today. HTC's new shipping timeframe comes just days after reports suggested component constraints were to blame for the handset's delay in getting to market. "HTC has had difficulty in securing adequate camera components as it is no longer a tier-one customer," is what one (anonymous) HTC executive told The Wall Street Journal. The company isn't acknowledging those rumors, but it would appear any such issues are being ironed out. Unfortunately, a late April US launch puts the One on a collision course with Samsung's Galaxy S4 — a device that's almost guaranteed to be an instant hit with consumers.
