HTC One lands at AT&T on April 19 for $199.99. Pre-orders start on April 4
AT&T has finally decided to announce pricing and availability details for the HTC One today. The superphone will become available on April 19 for $199.99 with a new two-year contract. This is for the version with 32 GB of storage space. If you’d like to double that up to 64 GB, you’ll need to pay a whopping $100 more. AT&T will be the only carrier in the US that will offer the 64 GB HTC One “at launch”. So it’s an exclusive of sorts, but for a limited time. Just how long this exclusivity will last isn’t clear at this time, but we’ll keep you posted.
AT&T will begin taking pre-orders for the HTC One on April 4, so this Thursday. If you pre-order, you’ll get a free HTC Media Link HD wireless HDMI adaptor, which will allow you to wirelessly share content from your phone to your TV, and is apparently a $90 value. Good to keep in mind.
On April 4, pre-ordering will start at 1 pm CT – if you go to this website. AT&T will have both the black and silver variants of the HTC One. The carrier has also listed a couple of apps it will preload on the HTC One (read: bloatware) – the AT&T DriveMode, which helps curb texting and driving, and AT&T Ready2Go, which lets you set up and customize your device from a computer. These almost certainly won’t be the only two AT&T-specific apps on the One, though. Carriers love their bloatware.
