Nokia's Attempt to Block HTC One Sales Has Failed, For Now

By Sam Gibbs on at

Nokia's spat with HTC over microphones thankfully won't affect sales of the awesome One for the time being. HTC's apparently free to use the HDR microphones it bought from STM electronics and to continue to sell HTC Ones with them already in until further notice, which is good, because HTC really needs the One to do well.

According to a company spokesperson, "Nokia's attempt to obtain a recall of microphones already sold to HTC failed" and that "HTC can continue to use microphones already purchased from STM in its products."

Hopefully that means HTC can actually get some Ones onto store shelves so people can, you know, actually buy them. Lord knows HTC needs some serious sales to bolster its falling revenue. [TechRadar]
