Update: It's live now! New Sprint customers will get an extra perk on pre-orders: $100 off. While it wasn't announced earlier, the pre-order page has a deal for customers porting their number in for a new line, allowing them to get the HTC One for $99.99. It looks like the offer won't be available after the device launches, so if you know you're switching to Sprint, best to get it now.

Sprint just announced in a Community post that the Now Network's HTC One will be available for pre-orders starting this Friday, April 5th, at a price of $199 on a 2-year agreement. The phone itself - which is the 32GB edition, by the way - will go on sale starting April 19th, meaning pre-order customers can likely expect to get their handsets around that time.

This comes shortly after AT&T's announcement earlier this morning of similar pricing, though Ma Bell will be offering all HTC Ones with a free MediaLink HDMI adapter, and will be the exclusive provider of the 64GB version of HTC's all-aluminum flagship.

Pre-orders, again, start April 5th, at this page.

    Bring it to Boost or Virgin Mobile. Sprint rates are too damn high.

    • Joshua Cedeno

      funny you say that since both boost and virgin mobile use a watered down version of Sprint's network... Also, what do you think about the other big 2 prices since Sprint beats them in price easily...

        Sprint, ATT, and Verizon are all overpriced. Only Tmobile has barely reasonable rates.

    How much is it off contract, full price?

      Not known at this point, but I'm guessing 600-700, as always.

      • Eric Jones

        Thanks, I guess I'll have to wait and see if it's anything different than normal.

    I went to a movie the other night and entered the lobby just as they were finishing putting away an info table for the HTC One. I was kind of bummed out because I would have liked to demo it.

    I've had so many issues with Sprint it's tragic. But an HTC phone with that price, I may give Sprint a second chance. But really, how much is the off contract price?

    • basteagow

      The developer edition was announced at $649, so I would expect something in that ballpark.

    The HTC One is out here in the UK, with the silver one in shops and on demo. I have played with it and the screen is outstanding, and I have a Nexus 4 (and have owned a Galaxy Note an S2 too), so that is saying something. It is exceptionally bright, almost like a real printed glossy photo, with more realistic colo(u)rs than Samsung displays. The HTC skin is well thought out too, with all the apps in one long page rather than on different 'screens'. All said, I bet you can customise it.

    I think HTC have a hit here, and from asking store reps, 50% want the One, 50% the S4. They just need to build enough before the X Phone arrives else HTC will lose the short window of opportunity.

      I am glad you made that (u) optional for those across the pond, it confuses the hell out of the dullards among us.

    I pre ordered mine this morning at 5:46am EST, and the price was $549.99 off contract, one hundred dollars cheaper then what I spent on the note 2 off contract.
