HTC One X Availability Remains a Mystery
While Sprint has told its customers that the HTC EVO 4G LTE will become available soon, AT&T has left those interested in the HTC One X in the darkness about when they can expect the device to return to physical and virtual shelves.
Earlier this week, it became known that HTC devices that were being held at U.S. Customs due to a patent dispute with Apple had cleared the government and would be shipping out soon.

Sprint decided to let its customers know that it would be releasing the HTC EVO 4G LTE soon. However, AT&T, oddly enough, has remained silent about the HTC One X that remains out of stock in both colors on its website.

We assume that the device is in the same boat as the HTC EVO 4G LTE and customers will see stock soon, but until AT&T says something official, customers are unfortunately left to wait in the dark.
Frankly, the mystery is a little dangerous for AT&T, especially with the competition heating up like it is. It’s also careless to leave customers in limbo like it has.
Clearly, this is an HTC problem but AT&T should be following in Sprint’s footsteps as far as transparency is concerned.
It would serve them well, because remember, not everyone can or wants to order from third-party retailers like Amazon.
Anyone looking for a different phone now because of the delay and the subsequent silence from AT&T?

It’s available at sam’s, believe it or not. I have to get mine through at&t, and I am definitely considering other options at this point.

I’m probably going to get a Galaxy S2 if it’s not available by the time I’m eligible for upgrade. Even though that’s 3 months away, I’m hoping that will be enough time for AT&T to release it.

I had to return mine to AT&T because after 10dys it just stopped working. I don’t know if it was the battery or the phone, but I was told that I would have a while to wait for replacement as they just got word it was being recalled for this very reason. That hasn’t been published anywhere though…

I went with the HTC Vivid, but I’ll upgrade to the One X by the end of June if I am not impressed with the Vivid. Would have been nice to have the option, though.

I’m in the market for a new phone. I *want* the One X to get AT&T’s better coverage in West Texas, NM and Colorado BUT if Sprint re-releases the EVO 4G soon I may end up getting the One X’s twin sister. In this event, AT&T hasn’t just lost the sale of one phone, they’ve lost ~$2000 in monthly service revenues over the two years that I will be locked in with a competitor.
