HTC One is so far one the greatest high end handsets not released yet! But a leaked picture of a training document for AT&T reveals that the second largest carrier plans on accepting pre-orders for the HTC One starting from this Friday April 5th.
The price stateside will be $249.99 for the 32GB model with a signed two-year pact. That contradicts the $199.99 price for the phone that we saw saw on the Radio Shack sign for the Sprint version of the model. According to the leak, the phone will available in two colors, Silver and Black and AT&T is not putting up any signage in its stores for the beginning of the pre-order period. The exclusive 64GB model likely won’t be ready in time for early adopters, but it’ll go for $299.99 once it does show up on store shelves.
The HTC One will be available for Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T while Verizon is expected to sit this one out. Still, with some funky things happening to the HTC DROID DNA’s online listing, there are some who feel that a version of the HTC One will end up at Verizon.
Meanwhile, the three carriers that are definitely getting the phone each will apparently offer different pricing.Based on the earlier Radio Shack sign, it looks like Sprint will have the HTC One for $199.99 on contract. If the leaked document that accompanies this article is legit, AT&T’s variant will ring up the register at $249.99 on contract and T-Mobile is expected to allow you to buy the phone with a $99 down payment and pay for the rest monthly.

At day ahead of the big “Apple’s wendesday” announcement event, we decide it today to make a breakdown on what the next iPhone will have such as features :
- A brand new design : The iPhone 5 might looks like an iPhone 4 or 4S in terms of broad-stroke design and styling, but compressing the iPhone’s guts into a 7.6-millimeter case was no easy task. The entire iPhone 5 will be reworked and will feature a sleek new unibody aluminum case, a modified antenna design and a variety of new internal components.
- A bigger display : As the line between smartphones and flat-panel televisions continues to blur, Apple conceded to an extent this year and the new iPhone will sport a larger 4-inch display panel.
- New mini dock connector : Apple has been widely criticized for using a proprietary dock connector and the company is finally ready to make a change — to a new proprietary dock connector.
- 4G LTE : It looks like the latest generation of LTE components are finally in a place where Apple can implement them without sacrificing too much in terms of battery life.
- Bigger built-in RAM : More memory means better performance and as we reported in July, Apple will finally double the RAM in its next-generation iPhone to 1GB.
- Strong processor : As is only logical, Apple’s next iPhone will include a more powerful processor. It is unclear if it will be the rumored quad-core A6 chipset or some modified version of Apple’s dual-core A5X SoC from the iPad, but it should be a solid upgrade either way.
- Nano-SIM support : Apple’s influence on the global mobile industry will again be illustrated when it launches the iPhone 5 with nano-SIM support. The industry will proceed to adopt the new nano-SIMs, and it will be the second time in as many years that Apple forced a radical shift in the SIM card standard after it remained unchanged for nearly 20 years.
- Launch timing : Rumors have varied but the most solid reports to date suggest that iPhone 5 preorder availability will begin on Wednesday this week, the same day Apple unveils the new iPhone, and we can reportedly expect the iPhone 5 to launch on September 21st.
Other thing to be mention is the NFC : Near-field Communication in the next-generation iPhone seemed all but certain a few weeks ago, but recent rumors suggest we might have to wait until next year for Apple’s iPhone to get enabled NFC.
Here’s donw below one of the coolest fake iPhone 5 ad to get us through the latest rumors in a quick and informative way. And kudos to the author, as this is one nicely done video :
The devil is in the details, as they say. But this guy has taken the extra care to do everything right. There’s no tell-tale YouTube icon on the homescreen and it has been proudly replaced by the latest Passbook app by Apple. Even the date on the calendar shows September 12. Oh, I love this sort of attention to detail!
What else can we look forward to on Wednesday ? Recent rumors point to new iPods and although it seems odd that Apple would clutter up its mobile event with new PCs, rumors point to a September or October launch for new iMacs and a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Retina display. As such, we may see them announced this weel as well.
Be sure to tune in at 1:00 p.m. EDT, 10:00 a.m. PDT (US Time) this Wednesday for all the news. We will be in place to give you all what you need to know about the new iPhone (iPhone 5) and everything else. So be sure to keep an eyes on our home page.
