Unlocked HTC One can be bought in the US for $800
The HTC One will be launched in less than two weeks by AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. The first two carriers are already taking pre-orders for the handset, which will be shipped starting April 19.
But what can you do if you want the smartphone now? Well, Amazon is selling the One unlocked for various prices – depending on merchant. The lowest price at the moment is $799.97, plus $4.49 for shipping. If you order now, you should receive your very own HTC One in 1 – 2 days.
The handset available at Amazon is the 32GB version, for which AT&T and Sprint are both asking $199.99 on contract.
T-Mobile’s HTC One will be released on April 19, too. It can’t be pre-ordered, but we know it’s going to cost $99 upfront with $20 per month for two years.
As a reminder, HTC will also introduce a Developer Edition of the One on April 19. This comes with 64GB of internal memory, unlocked SIM and unlocked bootloader, and will cost $649. So it’s obvious that you should wait for this version instead of rushing to buy the smartphone at Amazon.
Already released in some European markets, the HTC One is the Taiwanese company’s flagship smartphone for 2013, offering lots of high-end features, including a 4.7 inch Full HD display, LTE, quad-core 1.7GHz processor, and a 4MP Ultrapixel camera.
