T-Mobile to launch HTC One on April 24th?
For those who prefer to make their purchase online, The carrier is giving away a free car kit to those who buy the phone online. Right now, the carrier is just accepting pre-registrations for the phone however, which means that if you send your email address in to T-Mobile, they will alert you when the phone is ready to be purchased, which apparently will be April 24th.
Both AT&T and Sprint are in the midst of their pre-order periods. Both of those carriers will be launching the device on April 19th. The 32GB model will be $199.99 with a signed two year contract at both carriers. AT&T will have an exclusive on the 64GB variant of the device. Meanwhile, T-Mobile will be asking for a $99.99 down payment with the balance due in monthly installments over 24 months.

Can anyone explain why the carriers opt to keep people in the dark about release dates as long as they can? Doesn't seem to make sense especially when you're major competitor has released dates

Probably to keep Samsung in the dark. They don't want lovable and trustworthy Sammy to start paying people to astroturf and slander HTC like Samsung is doing in Taiwan.

It's not smart, but people could just buy the 32GB unlocked version from HTC and use it on T-Mobile. It's the same price, actually HTC site is a bit cheaper if you do the calculation... cheaper by $5.

it's because it will keep the customer from buying a current device . I don't agree with it but that's how it's usually done until the timing is right around the corner even the employees are left to go off speculation

AT&T will have the "exclusive" 64GB because they were the only carrier to opt for one. It's the carrier's choice which variant they will offer. By the way, Verizon will be getting One somewhere mid summer according to some sources.

I definitely happy for my favorite carrier Tmobile.The Galaxy S4 and Htc One will be great devices to add to their stable. I am happy to have my Galaxy Note 2 nothing compares period.
