Apart from mentioning that it would roll out in Taiwan in March, HTC's MWC flagship announcement was silent on release specifics for the One M9. Today the company gave us some more detail, revealing that the M9's staggered US rollout will begin on April 10.
In today's Q & A session for HTC's new Uh Oh program, President of HTC Americas Jason Mackenzie announced that the One M9 will release in different windows for each carrier (with different pricing as a possibility too), and that the process will begin on April 10. That happens to be the same date that Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will launch globally, including in the states.

There's no word yet on which carrier(s) will be shipping the One M9 on 4/10, but it will be available on all four major US carriers (T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T and Verizon). For what it's worth, 2014's One M8 launched first on Verizon, the same day the phone was announced. We'll likely hear more from individual carriers before long.
Stay tuned for more on the One M9 from Gizmag as we move towards its release.
