A previous bit of information coming by way of Best Buy had it looking as if T-Mobile was going to be launching the HTC One on April 19, however it looks like the retailer may have been posting those details a bit ahead of schedule. And in fact, it is now looking like the T-Mobile HTC One release date will actually be happening a few days after that — on April 24.
The latest details are coming by way of a leaked T-Mobile internal memo. According to the memo, the HTC One will be launching on April 24. The memo has the handset as coming to “select retail and branded locations” on that date. The handset will also be available by way of telesales on that same date.
T-Mobile will have the HTC One available with a downpayment of $99 with 24 payments of $20. We have also seen retail pricing (outside T-Mobile) showing the handset as being $249.99 for the 32GB model. Basically, that would be the price of the HTC One for those who buy it on a two-year agreement as retailers such as Best Buy will not initially be offering the new UNcarrier T-Mobile plans.
Otherwise, aside from the launch date, it is looking like T-Mobile will be putting on somewhat of a show for the launch of the HTC One. The memo shows the carrier as having specific in-store device placement and price cards and the employees will be wearing HTC shirts. Those venturing into a T-Mobile location between April 24 and April 28 can expect to get a look at those shirts. With that, it now looks like we just need to get the confirmation from T-Mobile.[via TmoNews]
