    According to a new report, HTC may end up shipping a great deal fewer of their new HTC One phone than they would like to. Apparently, the limited quantities of the device will be due to their new UltraPixel camera technology. Several of the critical components needed for the new camera are having low-yield issues at the parts suppliers. Here's a quote with some of the specifics,

    This is certainly more bad news for a company that has had nothing but bad news for quite some time. Of course, in this instance it looks like it was external forces outside of their control. Still, what's it going to take to shake HTC out of this funk?

    In this case, it seems like they were making a pretty good decision - I think camera quality is one of the few areas where you can still differentiate.

    That said, most users are still going to assume 13mp >>> 4mp.

    Just don't make the same mistakes as the thunderbolt. This looks like the most hyped device since the thunderbolt and yea the bolt was problematic. Then again will verizon even be getting the one?

    "Ultrapixel" might work for them (but then again "BEATS" didn't), but I think they have a serious problem when people look at the spec sheet and see "4mp camera". I doubt the VZW reps will help their cause as most of them will also be like 13mp >>> 4mp.
