    I live in WV, obviously I haven't checked every store, but it appears that every store does NOT have a one x plus in stock. Lots of stores I've been to don't even have it on display. Why the secrecy regarding the phone? One store rep told me they only have a display model, and only take orders for the one x plus. I asked him if they'd sold any of the phones, he said no. I'd like to complain to someone but who? How does htc expect to sell any phones with this type of distribution?

    I got two of them from Best Buy in Mobile, AL yesterday.
    Dunno why they'd be scarce up north.

    I live just north of Atlanta. The nearest AT&T store to me in northern Atlanta didn't have any. A store in a near by town had one left when I got there and I bought it.

    HTC doesn't have the cash, resources, or marketing muscle that Apple or Samsung do. Without the OEMs driving them, the retailers aren't going to push the product. HTC has lost almost half of their market share in the past year and are basically in survival mode. It's too bad, because the HOX+ is easily the equal of the GSIII, but the huge difference in sales is because of Samsung's ability to market their phones.

    One X+ has a better processor then the GS3. I still think the original One X is on par with the GS3.
