mahdibassam:

 

freitasm:

 

I read closely. My reply is a warning because some people may not be as lucky getting warranty, or not know how to get it. You'd be surprised by the number of emails I receive every month from people asking for help or information in some of these things.

 

Also, no off topic.

 

 

Dont understand your point, but anyway. as I said everyone has their own opinion. 

 

How is this off topic by the way? you sure you are reading my replies correctly? jeez. 

 

 

This is off topic because is about buying handsets, not about the HTC 10. So let's keep this way, ok?

freitasm: It is Thorndon Quay.

This is a review unit, from HTC.

 

 

 

@freitasm

 

Any idea/suggestion when/if the m10 is going to be released here (I assume you are in contact with HTC if they supplied you with a review unit)

 

My m7 and its warrantee replacement have both died on overnight charge in the official HTC charger. (the later one this morning)

 

So I am actively looking to buy m10. I want to buy from a shop but without some sort of idea when, I might have to source one myself.

 

Thanks for any help/insight.

 

 

 

A.

Can't find any service provider listing the M10 at all. Any idea why?

Perhaps because the last HTC person left and joined Huawei?

I sent a message directly to HTC via their New Zealand Facebook page last week, asking when they thought the 10 would be available through carriers here, and (somewhat cruelly, I admit) questioning their commitment to release when the profile picture on the page is still the One M9. Several hours later I got this reply:

 

Hi Andrew, Thanks for getting in touch with your question. Sorry to say we have no updates on the HTC 10 for New Zealand at this stage. We will be sure to keep you in the loop if this chages through our Facebook page. Thanks again for getting in touch. HTC

 

I'll be upgrading at the end of August and if there's still no news then it will probbaly be the Huawei P9 for me.

I think they have abandoned the nz market but don't want to actually say so for pr reasons.

 

 

 

HTC posts on facebook say "At this stage there are no updates on the HTC 10 being available in New Zealand. We will be sure to get in touch if this changes. Thanks, HTC"

 

Interesting to see that its "if this changes" not "when this changes"

 

 

 

HTCnz is dead

(Might just be that they don't sell enough here to maintain the costs of setting up a warrantee/service.

 

Going bust because the quality of phones would be sad but going bust when people want to buy their phones would be stupid)

No, I got it from the Australian PR. The HTC person had left to Huawei months ago.

Doesn't look like there's much confidence from carriers overseas either:

 

T-Mobile drops the HTC 10

 

android authority: After just two months of stocking the HTC 10, T-Mobile has decided it would rather dedicate that shelf space to something else. The HTC 10 has been pulled from T-Mobile's online offerings and T-Mobile staff have confirmed that no more stock will be delivered to brick and mortar stores.

The fact that HTC didn't even try to sell it in New Zealand direct to customers makes me wonder whether they even care that they're losing marketshare and losing money.

You do realise these are only rumours at this stage. It seems highly likely though HTC will be one of the manufacturers however nothing officially confirmed as yet.
