HTC has been doing a bit of teasing for the upcoming “All New” One. Naturally, the leaks and rumors have also been flowing at a steady rate. The handset will be unveiled on March 25th, and while we have yet to get an official look just yet, there are some availability details beginning to surface.
These are likely to vary from market to market, and by carrier to carrier, however Carphone Warehouse has come forward with some details for those in the UK. In what is being described as a “retail first,” the HTC One (2014) will be available from selected Carphone Warehouse retail stores from “around 4pm.” To drive that point home, it was said that means “just minutes after it is officially announced.”
Perhaps more important here — the locations. Details coming from Carphone Warehouse mention how the “handsets will be transported directly from the venue of the launch announcement.” They will be heading to six locations, of which five will be holding special launch events.
The special events will be at the following locations; Westfield Stratford, Westfield White City, Oxford Circus, Centrepoint and Tottenham Court Road stores. It was also said that Carphone Warehouse at Selfridges will “also be stocking the handset from the same time.”
Simply put, it seems those in or around London looking to pick up an HTC One in the midst of a party can head to one of those five locations. Alternatively, someone looking to make more of a low-key purchase should head to Selfridges. Pricing, as one would expect at this point, has yet to be announced.
