HTC One S release date set for April 25, available from T-Mobile for $199
Well, it looks like the rumors nailed it this time. The HTC One S for T-Mobile will be released on April 25, officially announced the carrier today in a press release. Getting your hands on one will cost you $199 after a $50 mail-in rebate and requires your signature under a 2-year service agreement. The smartphone will be available in select T-Mobile retail stores across the nation, as well as at the carrier's online store.

In case you have forgotten, the HTC One S is the middle child in the manufacturer's latest lineup of Android smartphones. It offers a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with qHD resolution, and the processor inside it is a mighty dual-core Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.5GHz. The 8-megapixel camera on the smartphone's back can capture 1080p video and shoot photos with virtually no shutter lag, while the HSPA+ radio peaks at 42Mbps on the downlink. Android 4.0.3 comes out of the box beautified by the Sense 4.0 user interface. Last but not least, all of these goodies are enclosed in a sleek metal body that is under 8 millimeters thick.

Anyone thinking of getting this bad boy when it is released? If you are having a hard time deciding, perhaps our HTC One S review might be of help.

HAHAHAHA. I'm definately not going to be using my upgrade on this price. I already have a Sensation 4G so its not like I'm dying to get a new phone. But this price ensures that I'll be sitting on that upgrade for a while.
