The HTC One finally has a release date.
Despite the big NYC unveiling, HTC hasn't exactly been forthcoming with details of the HTC One's price and release date. We've known it would be April, but that kind of vague release date will only get us so far. This weel, AT&T put us out of our misery with not only a proper release date, but a pre-order program to boot.
AT&T has announced that it will start accepting online pre-orders Thursday, April 4. The 32GB model will set you back $199.99 with a two-year commitment, while the 64GB model is priced at $399.99 with a two-year commitment. The company will be selling both the black and silver models. It's also worth noting that if you're after the 64GB model, you won't actually be able to get it on any carrier but AT&T as AT&T has an exclusive on that variant.
The HTC One boasts a "zero-gap" aluminum unibody, a 4.7-inch full HD 1080p screen with 468ppi resolution, a quad-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of storage (like the Nexus 4, there's no option for expansion via microSD), Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, LTE, and a 2,300 mAh battery. The device measures just 5.4 x 2.7 x 0.37 inches and weighs 143 grams.
