Brace yourselves kids

Rung Noel Leemings this afternoon to see when stock would be in

Surprise surprise they didn't know what I was talking about even after taking the invoice number (ITS NOT A FEEEKING ONE X!) but eventually worked it out.

Noels Person from TGA store said they would ring me back after talking to the supplier, brightstar

Ten minutes later - Brightstar doesn't even have a date for them to start shipping out to stores.

She said based on that probably next week

I spat the dummy and informed her I payed them $1600 cash for 2 phones nearly two months ago, after they originally sold me 28th April

Got nowhere fast, luckily the stupid customers that have come in this afternoon are being wary of the nerd rage brewing under my brows

I've seen this before where the phones miraculously turn up at the stores the morning of release or just before close the night before.

Hope this is the case - I don't really understand why they'd want to be secretive and 'protect' the release after its been delayed so much tho... What would be wrong with having (deletedlol) go out earlier?!

Curiously, Vodafone now have it listed on their site as a Mobile-Only purchase for $1099, so that is an option.

interesting question. Based on the HTC One X which was yes then why not. Alot of the web sites present the HTC One M7 as quad however my HTC One M7 from clove is not a quad (vodafone friendly).

I've ordered mine from SmithsCity here in Christchurch, as I understand it, the supplier is Telecom, the buyer checked for me today and was told they should received them Wednesday.

If this is the case, I can't see why the Telecom stores wouldn't have them on sale tomorrow, but we will all know very soon.

How much did you pay for?

I called Noel Leeming to check up my order, they called the Telecom supplier and apparently they say it wont be available to later this week.

Is this the most laughable launch of anything in the history of anything?
