[Update: Out of stock at US and Canadian sites.] HTC's new squeezable flagship phone is now available for purchase in the US from its online sites as well as Amazon and retail Sprint stores nationwide. Pre-orders are also shipping; some phones are already in customers' hands.

... and it's gone.

Earlier today, HTC announced on its US Twitter page that its much-hyped HTC U11 was finally available. The handset was shipping out to customers who had pre-ordered it, and Sprint retail stores around the country had it in stock. The new phone was also up for purchase from HTC's official website.

Just a few hours later, and the HTC U11 is no longer available from HTC's store. The apparently highly-desired phone has sold out not only on the company's US site, but in Canada as well. HTC has issued a statement telling customers to expect a 2 to 4 week delay before the U11 is back in stock online. Rather unfortunate news for those who were looking forward to "squeezing the brilliant" device in the immediate future.

The shipping delay does not affect customers who pre-ordered the U11, though. They should be getting their new handsets soon—in fact, many people have already gone to Twitter to show off their brand new devices. One of the perks of being an early adopter, I suppose.

But all hope is not lost! If you're quick enough, you can still get the U11, factory unlocked and in either black, silver, or blue, from Amazon. $649.99 gets you HTC's latest and greatest, which packs a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage—all alongside a 5.5-inch 1440p screen and the highest-rated smartphone camera ever. There's no telling how much longer the phone will stay in stock, so if you're interested then get it while you still can.
