The wait is over for the HTC One M9 — It’s in retail stores everywhere

As promised, HTC pulled the veil back on its latest flagship smartphone – the One M9 – at this years Mobile World Congress show. The new phone continues HTC’s tradition of building gorgeous looking phones, and although the design isn’t necessarily a game changer, it still remains one of the best looking smartphones on the market. Now, we finally know when the attractive new flagship phone will arrive in the United States.

Updated on 04-10-2015 by Malarie Gokey: Added news of HTC One M9 availability in stores at various locations.

In the U.S., the unlocked variant of the M9, which is priced at $650, was made available from HTC’s website starting at 12:01 a.m. on March 27, and the subsidized models launched on April 10. You can now walk into any of the following stores to pick up a One M9: AT&T, Best Buy, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Amazon, Best Buy Mobile specialty stores, Costco Wholesale, and Target.

Verizon’s pricing

Verizon finally announced pricing for the HTC One M9 after much ado. The 32GB version of the HTC One M9 will cost $200 with a contract, $600 full price, or $25 a month on Verizon’s contract-free Edge payment plan. You can preorder the phone now from Verizon’s website in either silver/gold or gunmetal gray color options, or just buy it in store.

Sprint’s pricing

You can get the HTC One M9 on the Sprint Lease plan for $0 down and $20 a month. If you pay $10 more a month, you can upgrade to a 12-month lease and get the option to upgrade once a year. Otherwise, you stick with the One M9 for two years, and then you must decide whether to upgrade or pay for the phone outright. Other pricing options include $200 with a two-year contract, $648 full price, or $0 down on Sprint Easy Pay with 24 payments of $27.

Sprint also has a special offer, which will get you the new Harman Kardon One Bluetooth speaker for $100 when you buy a One M9, saving you $50.

Available at: Sprint

AT&T’s pricing

AT&T announced pricing and availability for the M9 in a press release. Starting on March 27, you can order the HTC One M9 in AT&T stores or online. AT&T says the phone will ship the same day, so long as you order the handset before 1:00 p.m. CT. The device hit store shelves on Friday, April 10. If you want to signup for an AT&T Next plan, there’s nothing to pay upfront, followed by 24 monthly payments of $23.64, $29.55 a month for 18 months, or $35.45 a month for 12 months. Alternatively, you can get it with a two-year contract for $200 or pay for the phone outright, though it’ll cost you $709.

Available at: AT&T

T-Mobile’s pricing

The release dates are the same over at T-Mobile, where pre-orders started at 6am PT on March 27, and availability in stores began on April 10. The phone costs $27.08 per month with nothing to pay upfront, bringing the total at the end of the 24-month term to $650.

Available at: T-Mobile

Other retailer’s pricing

Should you prefer alternative storefronts, the usual retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Best Buy Mobile, Costo, and Target, also sell the M9.

The One M9 comes with 32GB of internal storage, and fans have the option of either a Gunmetal Gray, Amber Gold, Silver/Rose Gold, or Gold/Pink model. Despite the phone’s apparent lack of significant differences, we still walked away from our time with the phone impressed, and think there’s much to like about the M9.

To help you get a better look at HTC’s next flagship, we went hands-on with the device to give you everything you’d ever want to know about the phone. Our full review is also out, and you can read it here.
