That doesn't surprise me. But, the actual sales differences, meaning the gap, between 1st and 3rd are probably dramatically large.

Indeed

I must say, soooooo many reviewers are loving this phone, I have not seen a phone get so much love from reviewers since the Galaxy S2, I really want to give the One a go even for just a few days, such a shame internally Htc are in such a mess as it seems they are right back to the Desire days when it comes to their products, a few people at Htc making some great decisions despite all the drama.
Maybe next year if the GS5 isn't a major step up from GS4 I'll give the Htc One successor a go, what concerns me though is the post 18months update support of Android OEMs outside of Samsung.

Seems the US HTC One will skip 4.2.2 and go straight to 4.3:

HTC One will skip 4.2.2 and go straight to 4.3 says president



The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update was pushed out to the international versions of the HTC One over one month ago; and, of course the HTC One Google Edition has already been updated to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. But, the U.S. carrier versions of the HTC One are still running Android 4.1, and it has been a while since we've heard anything about when users should expect the update.

Well, good news, everyone! HTC's president, Jason Mackenzie gave some potentially great info to users with a tweet recently. According to Mackenzie, Android 4.2.2 is a "minor update", so HTC has decided to skip it and update the HTC One directly to Android 4.3. This may only be for the HTC One Dev edition, which is what the question was about, but since the dev edition is just an unlocked HTC One, it seems likely the plan will be the same for all One devices in the U.S. Mackenzie gave out the info because a user was frustrated that the Verizon HTC One was said to launch with Android 4.2.2, but the update hadn't yet come to other HTC One models. Mackenzie said that the decision was made "because 4.3 is so close. And 2.2 offered limited customer benefit."

Unfortunately, Mackenzie ignored questions on when we should expect to see the update pushed out to users, so we'll have to just keep being patient until we get more info.

That's good 4.3 but HTC do need to stop this carrier specific handsets and do what Samsung does and present it to all carriers which will create more sales. And stop confusing consumers with different variants.
Phone?? What phone??

The issue WRT carrier exclusivity is that in the USA the carriers pretty much run the show, especially Verizon and AT&T, and unfortunately if you are not Apple or Samsung you will not have the bargaining power to get a major carrier to take your phone(s) as is, carriers want an incentive to carry your device and brand, so it's not so easy for Htc and Nokia and other OEMs who are trying to break the Apple/Samsung duopoly.

This is just a current phase - the selection of manufacturers (Apple & Samsung) as just under 6/7yrs ago neither had any real presence - even lower than what BlackBerry has in the USA marketshare; so its a current phase which will change.

Providers Verizon (the 600lbs Gorilla) and AT&T are indeed the Shot-Callers.

Not the Htc One I know, but it shares similar hardware, the Htc Butterfly S just scored an excellent battery score over at GSMArena:

I ordered a Silver One. There was a little stock problem, that's why I have to wait.
