HTC announced its latest flagship last week in the form of the impressive HTC One, a device that immediately placed itself as a serious competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy S3 as the top Android phone of choice. Simply put the HTC One is a polished smartphone that is an amazingly well built unit that features the highest of specs and looks as good as any other phone currently available. You can check out our hands on review of the HTC One for the full details on this device.
We think even though it has just been announced that the HTC One has a bright future ahead of it, and this time HTC is really helping its device by having it biggest new launch roll out ever. The One will find its way to 80 different countries, and today HTC has been talking about availability in the UK, a country that had always served the brand well.
HTC has said that the HTC One will arrive sometime in March and will enjoy a global release that includes major markets in Asia, Europe, and North America. HTC is making a real effort this time by pushing the One out to 80 markets around the world, and within those 80 markets a total of 185 carriers will be offering the handset.
Consumers in the UK are being treated as all the major carriers will be offering the HTC One, so that means EE (Everything Everywhere, the UK’s only 4G network), Vodafone, O2, Three, Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U. Mobile specialist website Clover is already offering the 32GB variant of the HTC One for £425 (£510 including VAT) and is expecting stock on the 15th March, which looks like a leak of the release date to us!
Luckily we have had that date backed up, with Vodafone also pencilling in a 15th March release date.
