HTC One’s current ETA for Europe is mid-March, but don’t be surprised if you’re going to see the bad boy in stores earlier.
It was pretty smart to unveil the One before the Samsung Galaxy S4, but that’s going to mean zilch if HTC’s flagship won’t also be out in stores by the time the S4 is official. The sooner the better.
A few recent developments have woken us from our 2-year-plan slumber. We’ve been exposed to a very inexpensive unlocked phone in the Nexus 4, and T-Mobile has decided to stop subsidizing phones. If we can get a great unlocked phone for a reasonable price, or a cheaper rate plan with an unsubsidized phone, why shouldn’t we? Are we able to end our dependence on carriers? It’s possible, and maybe even better, to break away from the normal routine.

Sony’s flagship 2013 Android handset, the Xperia Z, was announced yesterday at CES 2013 – see our hands-on video here – and it will be launched in Q1 2013 in various markets.
Although it’s hard to single out just one OEM who’s made a mess out of Jelly Bean updates when pretty much everyone has been involved in at least of couple of Android 4.1 snafus, you can’t argue against bashing HTC.
As we inch toward a true global conscience, we are increasingly dependent on being connected. Being connected is what defines us, with things like social media, blogs, and news sites.

Do you know what goes well with Christmas? A red Samsung Galaxy S3 that you can get for a bargain. Here’s one super fine deal for O2 subscribers who are looking to score the red variant of the mighty phone.
It is all well and good having advanced Android phones with support for 4G LTE technology, but those in the UK (which has a population in excess of 60 million people and in Europe has a standard of living second only to Luxembourg) have been limited to just one 4G operator.
