The HTC One first debuted in silver, and I suspect using Robert Downey Jr. to advertise this handset might just be a match made in heaven, because like Iron Man, the phone has also appeared in shades of red and black (though not yellow). Now Best Buy is rolling in a new version of the HTC One that the Iron Patriot could proudly hold to his ear, a blue version that's exclusive to the big box retailer launching on September 15.
HTC recently announced the Vivid Blue HTC One, but this looks different. It's Metallic Blue and seems perhaps a tad darker. Customers can pick one up at any Best Buy or Best Buy Mobile store on AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. Shoppers can trade-in their used devices for a gift card worth up to $200, which may be an option for owners of the original HTC One who suddenly find themselves feeling blue. Unfortunately T-Mobile customers are out of luck.
Best Buy Launching Exclusive Metallic Blue HTC One September 15
The award-winning HTC One will be available in a stunning new Metallic Blue exclusively through Best Buy in the United States with the option of 4G LTE service from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon at the more than 1,400 Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores as well as on BestBuy.com on Sunday, Sept. 15.
Since its launch, the HTC One has received critical acclaim for its premium all-metal design and breakthrough smartphone features including the UltraPixel camera, reinvented home screen called HTC BlinkFeed™ which incorporates both news updates and social networks, and as the only smartphone with stereo front-facing speakers.
