HTC One Developer Edition unlocks the SIM, bootloader and your wallet all for $649

Since HTC never stood by its promise to unlock the bootloader on all new devices, a product like the HTC One Developer Edition is needed in the hackers and modders community; expected to be released the same time that the carrier versions hit the U.S. operators, the phone is expected to be priced at a rather hefty $649...

utterly useless product, if something needs a "developer edition" device in order to work then that simply means it's not going to work on the non-developer editions of the device that 99% of consumers will endup with, first Motorola, then Samsung now HTC, why can't they stop this stupidity...

allow me to clarify, i'm referring to the "developer edition" phenomenon, not the HTC One itself, which is appearing to be a decent phone.

Developer edition means it's bootloader is unlocked, scoff, SIM unlocked and you still have your warranty. That's that.

$50 more than usual smartphone price for unlocked phone? I'm in. Heck id pay the $50 just to get rid of the ugly carrier logos. That its the 64gb model is just a plus.

HTC for $649, too much money, maybe more like $549; someone please pinch this guy, wake him up.

Not really. It's $650 for the entirely unlocked and unbranded 64 GB version; that's only about $50-100 more than other off contract phones from carriers that only have 16 GB of storage.
About $50 more for an unbranded and unlocked device with 4 times the storage of off contract carrier seems pretty good to me.
