Tipster: AT&T HTC One pre-orders start April 5, $249 for 32GB version
HTC is preparing to launch the One in the United States, after the device went on sale in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Taiwan last week. According to a tipster, pre-orders for the new flagship phone on AT&T will start on April 5.
An anonymous source sent in a screenshot to Engadget that lists the 32GB version available in silver or black. Either version will run you $249.99 with a new two-year contract.
It’s now only a matter of time until Sprint and T-Mobile officially announce pre-order dates for their versions. If you’re interested in the HTC One on Sprint, Radioshack has at least hinted at the price. You’ll be able to pick up the One on a new two-year contract for $199, but you’ll receive $50 in Google Play credit and $10 Radioshack coupon with the purchase.
T-Mobile announced the HTC One will cost just $99 with its new Simple Choice plans. However, keep in mind that, since T-Mobile no longer subsidizes phones, you will also have to pay $20/month for the next two years, in addition to the cost of the subscription.
AT&T may have the upper hand though when it comes to larger storage options, with a promo video claiming that the 64GB HTC One will be offered exclusively (at least initially) by AT&T for a pricey $299.
Remember that the source of this information is anonymous, so it’s not fully reliable. With that said, which HTC One model do you plan to buy, once pre-orders open?
