AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile get HTC One
The HTC One will be landing on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Cincinnati Bell in the United States
The just-announced HTC One will be coming to the United States in late March and it will land on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Cincinnati Bell.
The HTC One is shaping up to be one of the best smartphones on the planet, as it sports a 4.7-inch 1080p HD screen, a 1.7GHz processor, 4G LTE, WiFi, an UltraPixel camera and a fantastic form factor. It's thin, light, beautiful and it should also be one of the most powerful handsets around.
AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile will be getting the HTC One with 4G LTE capabilities. This is one of the most aggressive carrier pushes for HTC, as the One will land with its distinct branding on 180 carriers in 80 countries over the next few months.
Of course, one big name missing from that list is Verizon Wireless, the largest carrier in the United States based on subscribers. It's unclear why the HTC One won't be coming to Big Red but I'd guess that Verizon wanted to keep its own branding on smartphones it offers. HTC did recently make the DROID DNA for Verizon and it shares many similar characteristics as the HTC One.
We don't have word on pricing just yet but I'd asssume the HTC One will cost about $200 on a new, two-year contract on AT&T and Sprint. T-Mobile may spread that cost out a bit differently as it pushes its "uncarrier" strategy but we'll report firm pricing when we know it.
HTC is in an odd spot. We truly believe that devices like the HTC One X and 8X are the best devices it has ever made and can go toe-to-toe with the Galaxy S3 and the latest iPhone. That quality hasn't seemed to translated into massive sales, as HTC's profits and sales have dipped over the last few years as Apple and Samsung take all the profits in the mobile space.
