According to the results of the American Customer Satisfaction Index, Verizon Wireless has been named to have the most satisfied subscribers among the big four carriers. The survey takes a number of factors into account,…
The HTC One S is a great buy for anyone who prefers a smaller screen which can be lot more comfortable in the hand. At 4.3″, the One S feels a lot easier to hold than the HTC One X (4.7″ display) and the Galaxy S3 (4.8″). Because of the LTE radio incompatibility issues with quad-core processors, in the US, all three devices also feature the same 1.5 Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor.
The One S is available exclusively with T-Mobile, but the network carrier only has the grey version with blue colored accent around the camera. While beautifully designed and great to look at, I think that the internationally-available black version with the deep red camera accent is even more elegant and classy-looking. Unfortunately, T-Mobile does not have the black version of the One S for sale.
Or do they?
It looks like the black HTC One S has arrived on US shores, complete with T-Mobile branding. That's the good news. The bad news? According to TMoNews, it looks like this version is not on sale, but is being given out to T-Mo store representatives who achieve a sales goal with HTC devices.
While a great reward for these deserving employees, T-Mobile should very seriously consider having this version available to the public as well. There's no indication as to whether the black One S will eventually release with T-Mobile. Hopefully this is a pseudo-test phase to gauge consumer reaction before the release. For now, if the HTC One S catches your fancy, you'll have to “settle” for the grey version.
