HTC is hoping to sell lots of new One smartphones around the world, so it’s obvious that it will make it available via many mobile operators, as well as many retailers.
If you are in the US, you will certainly be able to buy the One (also known as HTC M7) from AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. And there is also a big retailer that’s going to have the handset: Radio Shack.
According to this Tweet, Radio Shack will start selling the HTC One soon – hopefully, this means sometime in March. Unfortunately, there is no word on how much the handset will cost in the US. But looking at its unlocked price for Europe (around €580), it could cost about $600, off contract.
The HTC One is the world’s first smartphone to be powered by a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. That aside, the handset comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Sense UI 5, a 4.7 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display, 2GB of RAM, 4MP Ultrapixel camera (which should be able to make great photos), 32GB / 64GB of internal memory, and a 2,300 mAh battery.
It looks like Verizon will not offer the HTC One at all. This kind of makes sense, as the largest US carrier is already selling an LTE-ready 1080p HTC smartphone – the Droid DNA.
