The HTC One is available nationwide today

htc one back

Starting today, the One – HTC’s latest flagship smartphone – is available online and in physical stores all across the United States.

The list of retailers that will carry the One is quite comprehensive: AT&T, Sprint, Best Buy, Radio Shack, Walmart, Target, Amazon.com, Costco, Car Toys, Sam’s Club, HSN.com, and HTC.com. Looks like HTC is safeguarding against anymore problems with the One’s availability. But if HTC has enough units to fill orders from all these retailers, it would seem the supply issues have been ironed out.

The One is an impressive piece of hardware, we came away thoroughly impressed by its physical features. Specifically applauding the phone’s attractive design, crisp 1080p display, superior audio quality, and speedy performance. Unfortunately, the sealed-in battery, underdeveloped BlinkFeed, and some issues with it running hot left a bad taste in our mouth. Not to say it’s a bad phone, just not our absolute favorite.

You can nab the silver version for the following prices, storage options differ a little between AT&T and Sprint:

  • AT&T: 32GB for $200, or (online-only) 64GB of memory for $300, both prices require a two-year commitment
  • Sprint: 32GB for $200, also on a two-year contract
  • T-Mobile: 32GB version will be available soon
  • A black, 32GB version of the One will hit AT&T and Sprint “in the coming weeks”

The HTC One boasts a 4.7-inch, 1080p display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, and a zero-gap, aluminum unibody enclosure. HTC’s also included various exclusive features like the Ultrapixel Camera, Zoe, and Boomsound. But only time will tell whether this launch can save the floundering manufacturer.
