Even if it’s launching later than supposed to due to manufacturing delays, the HTC One is still going to beat the Galaxy S4 to market in the U.S. The handset will be available from three American carriers in the region, including AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, with Verizon still out of the picture.
AT&T will have two HTC One versions in store, the 32GB and 64GB models. The latter is an AT&T exclusive and will cost $299.99 when purchased with new two-year commitments.
As for the base model, the 32GB HTC One, the handset is priced similarly for AT&T and Sprint at $199.99 with new two-year contracts. AT&T offers buyers a free HTC Media Link HD wireless HDMI adapter ($90 value) with each HTC One pre-order but the offer ends on April 18, while Sprint is going to let them choose unlimited data plans.
It’s also worth remembering that a recent report revealed that Radio Shack could soon offer customers the HTC One version for $199.99, with a new Sprint contract, but bundled with a $10 Radio Shack coupon and a $50 Google Play Store gift card. The deal is not officially confirmed and we have no idea yet whether it will apply to other U.S. HTC One versions or not.
The HTC One will ship on April 19 no matter if you go with AT&T or Sprint.
On the other hand, T-Mobile has already announced that its HTC One will cost $99, off contract, but with monthly installments included. However, T-Mobile has not announced pre-order and shipping details for the HTC One yet.
