AT&T and Sprint have already started taking pre-orders for HTC One that’s expected to ship by April 19. Both carriers have priced this at $199.99. T-Mobile on the other hand despite not taking pre-orders will also be releasing this flagship device on April 19 with a cash out of $99 and $20 every month for two years.
If getting tied down to a network for two years doesn’t suit you then you might want to get the HTC One unlocked. There are numerous merchants offering this device unlocked at various prices but the lowest one right now is $799.97, plus $4.49 for shipping and is being offered at Amazon. This is for the 2 GB version that comes in silver. When you order the device it will even arrive in 1-2 days.
Even if the listed price is the cheapest so far for an unlocked device you might want to wait until April 19 before getting one. The HTC One Developer Edition will be released on this date and will only cost $649 which is way cheaper than what is listed in Amazon. The Developer Edition will also come with far superior specs with a 64 GB internal memory, unlocked SIM and unlocked bootloader.
