The HTC One first came available with T-Mobile back on April 19. Coincidentally, that was the same day the handset came available with AT&T. The catch with the T-Mobile availability though, as of the 19th the handset was available online only. As of today however, the HTC One is now available in retail stores.
T-Mobile has said the HTC One will be available in “select” retail stores beginning on April 24. While we suspect that some users may have been waiting until today so they could venture into a retail store and check out the HTC One and Samsung GALAXY S 4 side by side, remember the release for the latter has since been delayed until April 29.
As a recap, the HTC One can be purchased with a downpayment of $99.99. In addition to the downpayment, those making the purchase will then need to shell out an additional $20 per month for 24 months. Alternatively, those looking to avoid those monthly payments can opt to shell out the full retail price, which in the case of the One happens to be $579.99.
Aside from the price and availability of the HTC One, those planning a purchase will be grabbing the handset along with one of the new UNcarrier Simple Choice Plans which begin at $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and data. That plan also includes an additional 500MB of data at high-speed. With that, those still torn between the One and the GALAXY S 4 may benefit from reading our previously published comparison post.
