We all kept a good eye on HTC’s promise of selling a SIM and Boot Loader-unlocked Developer Edition of their HTC One on the same days that the carriers are getting their devices. We’re glad to inform that HTC kept their promise, and as of today at 10AM EST, you can purchase your Developer Edition HTC One online.
There are a ton of advantages to this device. First of all, it’s SIM unlocked, so you can use it on AT&T, T-Mobile or abroad. You can obviously tweak the software all you want since the Boot Loader is unlocked. Now even better is the price tag. If you wanted to buy a carrier-unlocked 16GB iPhone 5, it would cost you $649, and as it turns out, this HTC One comes with 64GB of storage for the same $649. The price is just awesome, seriously. Even the 16GB Galaxy S III still retails in certain places for that price tag.
Pre orders start today at 10AM EST, and even though HTC didn’t confirm a shipping date, reports have the device reaching your doorstep on April 19th. If you’re out for the cream of the crop and don’t want to deal with restrictions, this is seriously the best unlocked smartphone in the market, at the best unlocked price we’ve seen in the market so far. You can order it at HTC.com/US.
