New T-Mobile Retail Store Planogram Hints At HTC One Release On April 24th

Screen Shot 2013-04-15 at 1.13.09 PM

HTC One customers the T-Mobile world over have begged, hoping and wondering when the Magenta carrier would release the newest HTC flagship. Wonder no more as a newly leaked image of a T-Mobile retail store planogram hints that the sought-after device will launch on April 24th in “stores that are carrying the HTC One.” Unfortunately,  that means some stores won’t be carrying the One, at least initially which is similar to how the Galaxy S III originally launched.

Either way, it’s a date and one appears to be far better than some of the whisperings going around about a mid-May delay. To think you all thought I wouldn’t stop posting about the iPhone!

Let’s hope that T-Mobile makes this date official sometime in the very near future, we need our chance to try BlinkFeed!

    I would hope I could get one ordered via. phone or online because I don’t stay in an area where T-Mobile stores are populated anywhere near. It’s kind of ironic too because I ordered a case almost a week ago, and it said it would start to ship on April 24th, and I’m like wth, isn’t the HTC One releasing on the 19th supposedly.

    • g2a5b0e

      That’s not irony at all. It’s coincidence.

  • MrJigolo

    Anyone know the unsubsidized Tmobile price?

    • h_f_m

      Probably won’t know that until it hits their site for pre-order.

    • Omeer

      $99 down + 20X24=$579

      • 21stNow

        The real question is, how much will it cost those not on “qualified plans”?

        • jonathan3579

          $579 outright just as mentioned above.

        • thepanttherlady

          If $579 is the price point, it would be for “qualified plans”. The OP wants to know what the price would be for a “non-qualified plan”. We’ve already proven the cost is higher.

          @21stNow:disqus Based on our research and experiences, it’s probably safe to add $50 to whatever price you see for “non-qualified plans”.

        • 21stNow

          You’re right pantherlady. I probably will pass on the HTC One, but am somewhat interested in the SGS4. I guess I’ll wait and see what that pricing is on that, too.

        • ziggy123

          If you intend on purchasing the phone for prepaid you may be in luck. For a limited time, most premium smartphones purchased through the Tmobile prepaid website include a $50 prepaid refill card — this evens everything out.

        • thepanttherlady

          I don’t.

        • 21stNow

          What website are you referring to? I’ve never been able to shop for phones if I logged in to T-Mobile’s website using my prepaid accounts.

          I would imagine that the $50 prepaid refill card is for customers who are on prepaid plans that are $50 or higher. Those customers would be able to qualify for the $579.99 price anyway. My prepaid plan is $30, so I don’t qualify for the $579.99 price.

  • Anthony Domanico

    You totally should have said “leaked internal document with lots of boxes on it shows 4/24 release date for the HTC One”

    <3

  • Joshua Suits

    Why can’t they just release it on the same day everybody else is how hard can that be.

  • ShoeVixen

    OMG! I’m super duper excited…. My mytouch4g is on its last leg… Now, will need to find out “which” stores will have it on the 24th.

    • Joshua

      I love my mytouch4g and it too is on its last leg.

  • b3t0

    maybe you could pre order it on the 19th

  • jonathan3579

    Wow… The longer I wait for the phone, the more I think and start to reconsider what’s in line for the new Nexus. This is a horrible move on T-Mobile and HTC’s part.

    • Deon Davis

      If 5 days make you pass on the phone you was not that interested in the 1st place. Be like me rock 2 phones I got the Nexus 4 for my google experience and I will get this phone on launch day.

      • jonathan3579

        Well I’ve got the Note 2 and Nexus 4 but I was looking to narrow down my devices this week to just the One. (No pun intended.) I just am more disappointed than anything.

    • lazy

      this has nothing to do with htc. its all t-mobile. there all iphone now.

      • Herb

        Disagree. T-Mobile could have sold the phone on the 19th like anyone else, and the iPhone is probably to blame for the delay, but 5 days of delay from T-Mobile is nothing compared to the month+ delay caused by HTC. All of this stems from HTC’s manufacturing issues.

  • Deon Davis

    Somebody on XDA just got a retail box of T-mobile HTC One with picture! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2234761&page=3

  • LordCaliban

    Grrrrrrr, I was hoping to have my hands on it this Friday. Tempting me to switch to Sprint and get that $100 for transfering my number.

    • Deon Davis

      I hope you live in a sprint LTE 4g area. Their 3g speeds are slowwwwwwwwww. Its just 5 days guys.

      • Herb

        Not to mention the cost. $110 on Sprint for unlimited everything, $90 on T-Mobile including phone payments.

        • LordCaliban

          Was more of an empty threat from an impatient person. I can’t complain with spending $50 for service, $10 for 2GB (I never go over, always near WiFi) and my 15% corporate discount, then add the $20 for the HTC One. It’ll be about what I’m paying now anyways. Yay!

    • nd

      i just left sprint..and im in a LTE city (chicago)…tmobile was a data and voice upgrade

  • http://profiles.google.com/mrice.hill Mr. Hill

    Man I was hoping it was coming the 19th. Oh well

  • http://twitter.com/MBF85 Martin F.

    im gonna jump off a bridge if i dont get this phone soon!!

    • Eric QaOne

      THE THIRST IS REAL – TOO REAL!!! :O

    • Fatu Yu

      Dido!

  • epsiblivion

    so the gs4 is $500 retail and how much is the one?

    • Deon Davis

      Where did you see the gs4 is $500 retail? The One is $579.00 for T-mobile

      • epsiblivion

        well I saw in another article, the gs4 will be $99 initial payment and 20 months of $20 payments. unless I misread or the article is wrong and it’s actually 24 months. in that case, they’d be the same at $580

        • thepanttherlady

          EIP’s are now 24 months.

        • epsiblivion

          I see, thanks.

  • Deon Davis

    According to a poster on XDA it has no T-mobile branding on the phone. It look like Sprint and T-mo are the only ones with a clean phone.

  • Derrick

    A bit disappointed with this news. Its only 5 days but it may be longer for me with a “select retail” store launch. Especially with there only being 1 tmobile booth and 1 tmobile store within 30 miles of me. Hopefully they have them available on launch day so I can take advantage of the htc tradein program to get rid of this hd7. Guess I’ll head over to my local AT&T store on friday to check it out until T-Mobile can get it released.

    Any word on when T-Mobile going to officially announce this?

  • jbhotnessmon

    what is the point of dummy phones the store around my house has nothing but dummy phones and two phones with passwords. so there is no point in going to the store

    • thepanttherlady

      No one wants to steal a dummy phone to sell on Craigslist.

      They have demo handsets, you just have to ask to see it.

  • Dylan

    Is the HTC One for T- Mobile going to be sold at Walmart with an upgrade does anybody know?

  • madvillain

    gyeeeeeea

  • Fatu Yu

    I love TMobile but fudge I’m irritated as hell with the wait. All the stores have no clue when they will get it I went online and they have iPhone 5 are u kidding me I don’t want that crap! Get ur Shit together the wait is killing me!
