HTC One Now Selling at AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Amazon and Beyond
The HTC One, after suffering delays, is now widely available in the U.S. from three major carriers and several retailers.The delayed HTC One smartphone is now available online and in retail stores at AT&T, Sprint, Best Buy, Radio Shack, Walmart, Target, Amazon, Costco, Car Toys, Sam's Club, HSN.com, as well as on the HTC Website, HTC announced April 19. T-Mobile is selling the One online as of April 19 and will have it in stores April 24. HTC introduced the One—its new flagship phone and latest attempt to more effectively compete against Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy S devices—at a Feb. 19 event in New York City. The One is thin, light and fast and has a gorgeous 4.7-inch display, a new BlinkFeed home screen that's the result of HTC partnering with content providers from ESPN to MTV, industry-first dual front-facing speakers, and a feature-rich camera that can, among other things, take what HTC has described as "life in 3-second snippets" and video-plus-movie montages called "Zoes."
The One's unique camera, however, proved tricky for HTC's supplier, ultimately causing massive delays and undoing HTC's comeback plan. While HTC planned to release the One in 80 markets during the first quarter of 2013, the phone made it to just three. Consequently, instead of kicking off a fiscal and market share turnaround, on April 8 HTC posted its worst quarter since it began reporting results in 2004.
