Multiple reports suggest that the HTC One has been made available early in at least some AT&T stores, a week ahead of the official release date.
Finally some good news on the HTC One availability front, after multiple reports about the availability problems generated by manufacturing issues. It seems that HTC has been able to deliver its new aluminum-clad flagship ahead of schedule to AT&T stores across the US. Even better, for some reason, AT&T staff have no qualms selling the new HTC One now, even if the device is only programmed to premiere on Friday, April 19.
While we weren’t able to independently confirm the reports, their sheer number tells us that the HTC One is indeed making an early appearance. The sleek and powerful device is one of the best options if you’re on the lookout for a new device right now, and some go as far as to call it the best Android device ever. Check out our HTC One review here, if you’re still on the fence about buying it.
Along with AT&T, the two other major carriers that will sell the HTC One on contract in the US are T-Mobile (unsubsidized, but available in monthly installments) and Sprint. They both announced that the One would start selling mid-April.
The caveat is that the early availability of the One in AT&T stores could be a mistake that could be rectified at any time. Still, if you are close to an AT&T location (or if you’re dying to pick up the HTC One, like right now) you could give it a try.
What phone are you getting this spring?

Got One already ! And I love it !
How is it?? Is it worth waiting ??
Stopped in a store in NJ and they wouldn’t see it to me.
It’s true. I went to an AT&T store today and there it was! Unfortunately I’m a Sprint customer and haven’t found any Sprint stores to have it available. Here’s the number to the store I went to here in Oceanside, California: (760) 729-9215

No dice here in Colorado (Denver Tech Center Locations) on Saturday morning. Tried three stores (Lone Tree, Park Meadows and the Vistas, which is Park Meadows Mall). Only one (Vistas – Park Meadows Mall) said they could not sell it until next Friday, the other 2 stores said they were out of them which leads me to believe that they would sell it to me if they had them. Both locations went in back to see if they had any more left. All locations raved about the phone and said how wonderful it was.
I work for AT&T. We have the HTC One and its on display. In fact 4 of them are on display. But at least at my store we won’t sell them until the 19th. But customers came in today saying that other locations were selling them. Are shipment only has the 32 GB version. Haven’t received the 64gb One’s yet.
Tyler, TX told me they would start selling Tuesday.. Apr 16th. I don’t know how reliable that is.
