The HTC One has been the dominant subject in the technology spotlight today, shaping up to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing and powerhouse ready devices to date, which when pulled off correctly, can be a very attractive combination.

We have good news for UK residents, you can pre-order the device with Clove for £510. This will get you 32GB of internal memory, accompanied by the increasingly popular Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 1.7GHz quad-core processor, a 4.7-inch SuperLCD3 capacitive display with an impressive 1920 x 1080 (468 ppi) resolution, and a staggering 4MP UltraPixel rear-facing camera, and a 2.1MP front-facing camera.

The price may seem excessive for some, but more of us seem to be purchasing SIM-only devices nowadays, for their freedom from costly contracts.

The HTC One is on the fast lane to stardom in todays news, so why not get ahead of the game and pre-order yourself one at Clove.

  • Nonsens Ultra my butt!

    Wonder how much it’s going to be in the us unlocked. 600?

    • DetroitTech

      They ship to the U.S. and it’s 656 with 40 dollar shipping. So $700…

        I guess that feels right for a high end phone. Still though, ow.

      If you can chose a Carrier that is $25 per month less the ‘The Big Three’, then in three years you save $900, or $600 in two years. The Phone is unbranded and never locked, brand new from the Factory.

      That means (after what you save) you will pay $100 or be $200 dollars ahead IF you are able to use the Services of the less expensive Carrier (and get equivalent Service to what the more expensive Carrier offers).

      Only by switching to a lower cost Carrier can we encourage the top Dollar Monopolies (Cartels) to offer lower pricing.

        A: There is no carrier in my area that has good signal and LTE other than verizon and ATT.
        B: even the ones with bad signal (and MNVOs) don’t have $25 plans that offer what what I want: 3GB Data, 500 mins and unlt text
        C: I’m on a family plan, $60 a mo for my share of a 15GB pool (that we never use over 11GB of anyway) of data, unlimited mobile to mobile and texts.

        I would use tmobile’s new unlimited plan if they had good coverage in my area.

  • Owww. 510 quid? I’m running away…
