The HTC One will release to customers in the Middle East in April, according to Neeraj Seth, senior brand communications manager for HTC Middle East.

While the phone will be available in selected markets in March, it will be officially released in the Middle East in April

The One is currently available on the German O2 network, and other European pre-ordered devices are set to be delivered in March, but it appears that general availability is going to be sometime in April for most everyone. Of course, individual carriers will make their own announcements with their own release schedule.

As Phil reminds us, timing is everything. Pushing back the release date means there will be more great phones to choose from there beside it on the shelf. That's a good thing for us, but HTC doesn't want the latest from Samsung, Sony, or LG there to steal your eyes away.

The good news is that April is only two weeks away. We should soon here solid release dates from carriers world-wide, and we'll let you know as soon as that happens.
