HTC One pre-orders: Today, AT&T; tomorrow, Sprint

HTC One pre-orders: Today, AT&T; tomorrow, Sprint
HTC's Android flagship model, the HTC One, has already launched in the U.K.,Germany and Taiwan. HTC had hoped to have the device available in the U.S.a full month before the arrival of its chief rival, the Samsung Galaxy S4. But with problems getting components for the camera, the HTC One will end up with a small window of opportunity for it to pick up some momentum before Samsung launches the model that is widely expected to go right to the top of the sales charts.

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.

pre ordered mine at BestBuy on 4/2 no having to wait till the 4/5 for sprint. I think they're taking AT&T pre orders as well.

What is Best Buy offering if you pre order for ATT? I am guessing nothing, which is why I would go straight through the carrier.

I guess we have a best buy employee who doesn't like my question thumbing it down. Why would i not get a free $90 accessory just to say i got the HTC One at Best Buy? Makes no sense.

Does anyone know if I'll be paying the usual taxes and fees if I switch to T-Mobile.. For example if i choose the 70 a month plan unlimited... Will it just be 70 a month ...or additional fees after that

HTC One does not compare to the S4 people give it up. Keep on dreaming...HTC will never compete with Samsung. They are the kings of the cell phone world!

I'm so undecided between this and the gs4. Can't wait to play with both in person. May the best phone win.
