Unlocked HTC 10 will be shipped to the U.S. this coming week

HTC's Jeff Gordon took to his Twitter account on Friday to announce that the unlocked version of the HTC 10 will start shipping to the U.S. this coming week. That is good news for those AT&T customers who turned to the manufacturer's own website to pre-order the new flagship model. Because the nation's second largest carrier is not carrying the device at this time, AT&T subscribers who want the phone have to purchase the unlocked variant of it, which does support the operator's LTE network.
Yesterday, it was announced that Verizon will have a exclusive on the carrier-branded version of the HTC 10 until May 10th. Big Red started to take pre-orders for the handset yesterday, and says that it will start shipping those units on May 5th. Yesterday, Sprint revealed that the HTC 10 will be available for its customers on May 13.
While AT&T isn't offering the HTC 10 right now, there is precedent for them to make a late arrival. Back in 2013 when the HTC One was launched, Verizon did not offer the phone because it felt that the HTC DROID DNA was a more than sufficient replacement. But Verizon later changed its mind and added the HTC One to its lineup.
You can pre-order the unlocked version of the HTC 10 by clicking on the sourcelink. On the site, you can also start the process of trading in your current handset to knock some bucks off of the $699 price of the new flagship handset.

You know what? I never but anything that's just been released... I wait patiently for customer reviews and response and then make a move... Preferably wait for a discount and/or BOGO Deals! If is a car or a motorcycle, then I'd prefer to wait for any recall and learn about known issues beforehand... Any product that's less than one year old is in BETA STAGE for me...! A wise bum, am I naught?

that's a stupid idea, specially when it comes to electronics and cellphones! one year is like ages for cellphone industry. but for 3-4 weeks I have no problem, to gather some perspective on how good the device is and how well built it is.

If Google would allow it on the Fi network I would bite.

Don't hold your breath about getting one, at least don't if you're in the US. I ordered one third week of October. Order status says it is complete, but following the tracking number with FexEx shows a label was printed but package never received for shipping. Dealt with customer service for two weeks after a week of no shipment. Two reps said they'd escalate the issue and get back to me. Instead they closed the case. I put a complaint in to my credit card company and attempting one more time to order the HTC 10. If I still don't get a timely delivery, I'll have to consider keeping my HTC 8 for a while longer or get a Samsung Galaxy 6. The 7 is too expensive right now.
