The HTC One will go on sale after March 15 2013, according to the Taiwanese company, which got 185 carriers from around the world on board.
Previous rumors about the HTC One going on sale from three major US carriers have panned out. The One will sell at AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint at an undisclosed date.

The HTC One will sell in the UK from all major carriers – O2, EE, Vodafone and Three.
In Canada, the HTC One will come to all four major carriers – Rogers, Bell, Telus, and Virgin Mobile.
In all non-LTE markets where the device will sell, the HTC will be marketed as LTE-ready.
We don't have any information on the price of the device, but knowing the market and HTC, we can guestimate that the One will go for roughly $600.
