AT&T to Start Taking HTC One Pre-Orders?

An anonymous tipster to Engadget has reported that AT&T will begin taking pre-orders for the HTC One this week, starting with the 32GB version in either Silver or Black. The price, with contract, starts at $249.99, which is a bit more than Sprint will supposedly be asking. Since this isn't an official announcement, it's acceptable to remain cautiously optimistic that this won't be the final price. The exclusive 64GB version will reportedly not be ready in time for the pre-order launch. Source: Engadget

Sprint HTC One Starting at $199?

A new Radioshack ad featuring the HTC One hints that it will start at $199 with a two-year contract. That price-point would put it in-line with other premium smartphone devices. This deal will also score you a $50 Google Play gift card, for whatever that's worth. It looks like all the major carriers are beginning to let slip their pricing, so we're not too far from knowing everything there is to know except the U.S release date. Source: Phandroid

AT&T Nabs 64GB HTC One

For those that have a need to carry around as much data as possible, AT&T has got your number. Pardon the pun. In a video announcement, AT&T has announced that they've secured exclusive rights to carry the 64GB version of the HTC One. All other carriers will be stuck with just 32. It's a great move for AT&T, but not so much for HTC. The main idea behind launching a new flagship device under financial instability should be to get the phone in the hands of as many people as possible. Either HTC is making out like bandits in this exclusivity deal, or they are confident enough that it won't affect their bottom line. Possibly both. Since AT&T scored the iPhone a few years back they've come under increased scrutiny for spotty service. It's difficult to say how many people are going to be willing to leave their current network in order to get the larger size, but it's safe that a number of them that do aren't going to be happy with where they're being forced to go. The current comments on Youtube can be taken as a litmus test as to the various arguments that are sure to sprout up over this decision. It will be interesting to see how this compete with T-Mobile's recent HTC One announcement as well.

HTC One Proves Impossible to Fix on Your Own

iFixit is famous for proving guides and tools for armatures, hobbyists, and shop-owners to fix their own devices, and so they've done a tear-down guide for the HTC One. For people looking to avoid possibly costly and time-consuming repairs are going to be sorely disappointed, as the One has garnered a 1 out of 10 in repairability. So, yeah, don't plan on being able to tackle this on your own. iFixit states that it's "very, very difficult (possibly impossible?) to open the device without damaging the rear case." That's just one of several serious problems that throw a giant wrench in the repair process. They do, however, state that the incredibly solid construction improves durability, so that's nice. As smart phones improve and the overall architecture becomes more solid and complicated, it will become more and more difficult to avoid going directly to the manufacturer and paying whatever ridiculous fees they come up with. It's a trade-off. One that is sure to frustrate many people. Via: iFixit

Facebook is Throwing a Party

It looks like the time has finally come; the Facebook Phone is possibly just around the corner. Facebook has begun sending out invites to an event on April 4th, with the tease of "Come See Our New Home On Android." It's hard to get more confirmation than that, so all that's left to see is if it really is the HTC Myst that's been floating around for the past month or two. The Myst is confirmed to be a mid-ranged device, so it clearly won't be cannibalizing any sales from the One. For those Facebook junkies out there -- and there are still quite a few -- The Myst would be an attractive offering. The Facebook phone has been rumored to have been in developed for a few years, so it's nice to finally see something come of it. HTC could be on a possible upswing with the reveal that pre-orders in the U.S for the One have been through the roof. A well-timed release of the Facebook Phone could help put them on top. Of course, it also helps that they've finally taken the gloves off.

Neat Tips for the HTC One

While the absence of any concrete release info for the One is starting to grate on the nerves, Trusted Reviews has compiled an informative list of tips and tricks for the One. Of course, they have one and you don't, but hopefully this will help satiate the salivating internet. Or, you know, something like that. The list further details Blinkfeed, Zoe, and the camera. Prospective customers would do well to check out, and hopefully it won't further increase the pain that comes from not yet owning one. Pun possibly intended.

Update Released for Phone You Don't Have

HTC has released an update for the One's camera, which has reportedly improved the image quality quite a bit. Of course, most people do not have access to the One as of yet, so just know that once you get your hands on it, the picture quality will be better than it was. So, cool? You can check out GSM Arena for compassion shots between the old camera software and the new update. After that, feel free to lament over the fact that the U.S still has no release date.

HTC No Longer Quiet

Though they still plan on being brilliant, HTC will certainly no longer be quiet. As they gear up to do battle with the likes of Samsung and Apple, HTC will be dropping their well-known "Quietly Brilliant" tagline and going with something more aggressive. This is all part of a marketing plan that plans to hit competitors hard and show the public what HTC is really made of. Crashing Samsung's Galaxy S4 event now seems like a small piece in a much larger puzzle. CEO Peter Chou's recent job-bet, however, still seems desperate. HTC will also spend more on marketing than they ever have before, even if they don't have the same resources that Samsung does. As HTC's new attack plan comes into focus, so does the still mysterious HTC One launch date. U.S pre-orders for the One have even broken records for the company. Via: Digital Trends

T-Mobile Offering HTC One for $99

Even though the official pricing and release date have somehow yet to be hammered down, T-Mobile has come forward with an interesting bit of news. In the U.S, T-Mobile will be offering the One for as little as $99.99. If you're thinking, "hey, that sounds great! is there a catch?" it means that you know something is too good to be true when you see it. T-Mobile will offer the One without contract for $99.99, but customers will also be required to pay monthly installments on top of that. Nothing is ever simple. Still, it's possible that it could still be -- but probably won't be -- the cheapest way to get your hands on a One, and the possibility of no contract is going to look very appealing to many people. Out of contract devices typically cost much more than their contracted counterparts, so keep that in mind when T-Mobile attempts to entice you. Source: Android Authority

HTC One U.S Pre-Orders a Huge Success

Even with no impressive marketing campaign, it appears that HTC has still been able to pique enough interest in the One to net "several hundred thousand" pre-orders in the U.S. While that's no number to sneeze at, HTC will have to combat Samsung more than ever due to the One's previous delay. In an internal message by an un-named HTC executive, HTC confirms that this is the strongest consumer response they've ever had. It's great to see a huge early response, but it's hardly indicative of how things are going to go in the long run. The One has had strong early reviews, but the battle is entirely up-hill. There will be no easy wins for HTC. We'll see in the coming months if they have what it takes to stand strong, especially after an almost comically bad couple of years. Via: Focus Taiwan
