U.S. retailer Best Buy is now selling the Verizon HTC One for a meager $49.99 with a two year contract. This price is applicable even for the newly launched Blue variant. The Metallic Blue variant is exclusive to Best Buy in the U.S. and is available since yesterday.
Amazon has a comparable deal for the smartphone through its site but it only sells the silver variant. For $49.99, users will have to sign a two year pact with Verizon and sign up for an applicable voice/data plan. Best Buy will ship the device within 3-5 business days and even provide in-store pickup.
It’s quite clear that retailers are aware of the current market situation which has plenty of new smartphones like the LG G2, the Moto X and the yet to be launched Samsung Galaxy Note 3, forcing the HTC One to be priced attractively. We can expect other retailers to follow suit as the HTC One is relatively old now, but worth your money considering the amount you’re shelling out.
