HTC launches new Android smartphone – One A9

Mid-range is where it's at so that's where they were aiming. Something I think they have achieved brilliantly ... just wondering if we'll actually see it locally (anytime soon)
HTC announced that he unlocked edition will get updates within 15 days of the first Nexus update.

Very nice, but will the unlocked edition be available everywhere and are people (other that a few geeks) really interested?
