The wait is finally over for many of you either using the AT&T network, or thinking long and hard about switching to AT&T. HTC has just confirmed that pre-orders for their much acclaimed HTC One begin in just two days, on April 4th. The official launch date for the device is April 19th in case you’re not able to make the pre-order lines. Yes, don’t doubt for a second that this phone will sell out on launch date. The whole reason why it’s been delayed has to do with manufacturing issues and supply restraints.
AT&T will carry the 32GB model for $199 after a two-year contract, and will retain exclusivity over the 64GB model at $299. To sweeten the deal, they’ll also include a Media Link HD for free, which is an awesome deal since the gadget allows you to mirror the content on your device to your TV. Now everything points to this accessory only being offered to pre-sale customers, so this makes it even more important that you pre-order on time.
Just as with the HTC One X last year, AT&T has decided to keep all the standard features of the HTC One, which is great news. Yes, there will be a tad of bloat ware included, but nothing you can’t disable once you pull the device out of the box. For more information on what AT&T features will be included, watch the following video.
Update: Sprint has just announced the start of its own HTC One sales, and its schedule is quite similar to AT&T’s. Pre-sales begin on April 5, and the phone finally becomes available on April 19. You’ll pay just about $200 for the 32GB model on-contract.
