Last month, when HTC announced the Gratia, it said the smartphone would be available across major European markets starting November this year.
Well, November’s pretty much gone, and you can’t buy the Gratia at the moment, regardless of where you are.
I’ve contacted HTC by e-mail, asking about the handset’s availability across Europe, and this is what they’ve answered:
“In regards to the HTC Gratia,
Yes this device is due to be released in the United Kingdom soon. We do not have exact dates as yet, this is to be confirmed.”
In other words, the Gratia is delayed.
So, the bottom line is that the Gratia is not delayed. It’s available only in some European markets, while others (like the UK) will get it in early 2011.
