How to get your hands on the HTC One

The HTC One comes in two storage capacities and from three different carriers, and CNET gives you the skinny on where (and when) you can get it.


The HTC One, otherwise known as the phone that we're sort of in love with right now, hits various online and retail stores today.

Two carriers that offer the device, AT&T and Sprint, start selling the device today via both their respective online and retail stores.

However, only AT&T carries both storage capacities for the HTC One.

Contract-free carrier T-Mobile also starts selling the handset today , though users can only purchase it online for now. Starting on April 24, it will be available in the carrier's retail stores.

Unfortunately, Verizon will not offer the smartphone on its network.

Carrier;         &nbsp Date of availability;      &nbsp Price
AT&T April 19 online and retail 32GB, $199; 64GB, $299
Sprint April 19 online and retail 32GB, $199 (or $99 if you switch to Sprint and bring your number)
T-Mobile April 19 online; April 24 retail 32GB, $579 (or $20/month for two years, with $99.99 down payment)

The phone boasts a 4.7-inch, 1080p LCD display that contains 468ppi. It runs on 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and features HTC's sleek and updated Sense user interface. On the back, there is a 4-"ultrapixel" camera that features HTC's ImageSense system and new ImageChip 2 hardware.

Inside, you'll find a 2,300mAh battery and a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor powering the device (in fact, the handset is one of the first U.S. phones to have the new Snapdragon 600 CPU).
