HTC One pre-orders: Today, AT&T; tomorrow, Sprint34
Today, Thursday, the HTC One can be pre-ordered from AT&T with the 32GB model going for $199.99. A 64GB model will be available as an AT&T exclusive priced at $299.99. Native storage is something that you will need to consider with this phone since it does not offer a microSD slot to expand the amount of storage on the device. From now through April 18th, those who pre-order the HTC One from AT&T will get an HTC Media Link HD wireless HDMI adapter, a $90 value, for free.
Meanwhile, on Friday Sprint will have the HTC One available for pre-order priced at $199.99 for the 16GB model. Both AT&T and Sprint will be launching the phone on April 19th. While it has not yet been formally announced, a picture showing a Radio Shack promotion reveals that the retailer will sell the Sprint variant of the phone for $199.99 but will toss in a $50 Google Play Store gift card and a $10 Radio Shack card. T-Mobile will also be carrying the phone although the nation's fourth largest carrier has yet to announce a date for pre-orders. T-Mobile will sell the phone for a $99 down payment with monthly installments due afterward. The mobile operator is giving away a free-car kit to HTC One buyers while supplies last.
The HTC One is equipped with a 4.7 inch LCD 3 screen with a FHD resolution and an industry leading 468ppi pixel density. Inside is a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 2300mAH battery. The 4MP camera onback uses what HTC calls UltraPixels to let in 300% more light, and there is a front-facing 2.1MP shooter for self-portraits and video calls. Android 4.1.2 is installed out of the box.
