All New HTC One in-store release date is sooner than expected: set for March 25 in the UK
In it, Carphone Warehouse says that it will start selling the All New HTC One on March 25th from around 4pm, “just minutes” after the official London event wraps up.
We are yet to learn whether HTC will follow the same launch schedule in the United States, but if it manages to pull off the launch of its new HTC One so quickly, it will have a couple of weeks to sell its flagship before Samsung releases its own Galaxy S5 flagship phone.

All new HTC One available from Carphone Warehouse from 25th March announcement day
London, 18.03.14: In a retail first, Carphone Warehouse has revealed that the new HTC One (M8) handset will be available from selected stores from around 4pm on Tuesday 25th March – just minutes after it is officially announced.
The new HTC flagship device will be officially unveiled by the manufacturer at special events in London and New York earlier that afternoon. Shortly after, the new HTC One (M8) handsets will be transported directly from the venue of the launch announcement to six Carphone Warehouse stores in London. Westfield Stratford, Westfield White City, Oxford Circus, Centrepoint and Tottenham Court Road stores will all be hosting special events celebrating the HTC launch with entertainment and giveaways as well as the first chance for customers to get their hands on the new device. Carphone Warehouse at Selfridges will also be stocking the handset from the same time.
Full information including videos of the new handset will be shared on www.carphonewarehouse.com and customers will be able to order the HTC One (M8) over the phone from the same afternoon, before it is available from all 770 Carphone Warehouse stores and to order online shortly afterwards.
A Carphone Warehouse spokesperson comments, “The HTC One is an award winning handset that set the bar for design during 2013 and made many sit up and take notice – the new HTC One M8 is likely to continue that trend and will cement HTC’s future as a heavy-hitting smartphone manufacturer. We know how keen customers are to get hold of the latest tech as soon as possible and that is why we are so excited to be able to offer the new HTC One so quickly after it is unveiled.”

If they do release around the global on that date, they will have a good fighting chance this year. :D Beating your opponents to the punch always help somewhat in gaining the market share.

Seems like this is a special promotion for a few select locations in the UK, NOT that the phone will be launched worldwide on the 25th....

This is fantastic news, so will we get user reviews (of the camera aswell) before the tech sites??? This is one way to beat the Samsung Galaxy S 5.
Lets hope the sim free price is not as massively expensive!!!!!
Can wait to see how the camera works & what Megapixel the photos come out as.
