I know that everyone is really excited about the “All New” HTC One, set to be announced later this month, but those of you looking to score a deal on last year’s model might be interested in this. HTC is now selling the original, unlocked HTC One for $499.99 directly from its website.
When first released, HTC sold the device for $599.99, although it recently dropped the price down to $574.99. This latest decrease represents a $100 savings under the original price.
This by no means as good a deal as others we’ve come across, but it’s still a reasonable asking price for a phone that – despite its age – will still be relevant for at least another year. Just keep in mind that, even though HTC advertises it as compatible with both T-Mobile and AT&T, it can’t connect to HSPA+ on T-Mobile AWS spectrum. This means that, if you don’t live in an area with LTE, it will only be able to connect to T-Mobile’s 1900MHz network which, in some places, is 2G/EDGE only. Your mileage may vary depending on your location, but it’s worth noting.
