    I'd like to revise my answer from 'maybe' to 'yes' being that I am now the proud owner of the last HTC One found in a Phones4U store in West Sussex (according to the stock check the sales rep did for me in another store).

    I'm on my way home with it now and will set it up once there. I expect i'll be gushing with happiness on the forums later on, please accept my apologies in advance! :D

    (And it's my hundredth post too, which was nice)

    I voted no. I am with Verizon and I have had enough headaches with the Rezound. It hardly made it a year and was EOL. The DNA has already bit the bullet. I will be looking for something that doesn't go through batteries like nothing.

    Can't wait for my one to turn up...

    Literally checking the Handtec site and my emails every couple of hours in case they send out a update on when they are shipping...


    Edit:
    oh FFS, delayed shipments...

    Handtec now apparently getting their 1st batch on the 3rd of April and every seller on amazon is now listing stock on the 12th April.

    oh well what can you do...

    I don't know yet. Put another way, if I do get a new phone in 2013 it will be the HTC One.

    Who knows...Pretty much every part of the world has been beating the U.S. lately with launching devices in a timely fashion.

    It wouldn't surprise me at all if Canada beats the U.S. by a few weeks with both the S4 and One. I pretty much said all along that these phones will launch pretty much together in the States sometime in early May.

    Wouldn't the AT&T version work on T-MOBILE? I know that as both are GSM networks,one will work w/the other,but,I thought I read somewhere that all the bands that are on T-MOBILE will be accessible w/the AT&T version.

    This would be insane if sprint/tmobile only had 8gb and 16gb options. This would make it an absolute no buy for me. At this point they may as well add sd card support if this is true. Anyway, only time will tell but I know one thing, HTC can't afford to be bs'ing around or it will be a very short 2013 for them.

    Verizon had an exclusive on Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

    Later, it appeared on Sprint.

    No sensational blogosphere stories with this headline appeared -

    "OMG, WE STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT WORD MEANS!"

    Maybe the 64 GB job will only be available on AT&T.

    I'm with you there... If Sprint doesn't have at least 32GB, I'll have to bail as well. I doubt there'll be SD support, tho that would be so cool! But I think that's just dreaming!

    HTC has said that the 16 GB version was a special for Taiwan only.

    Hearing this preliminary report of the 64GB version being an ATT initial release exclusive has me absolutely frustrated. :mad:

    Obviously like you others have said, we will have to wait and see how it shakes down. There is always the chance that the exclusivity is temporary for a time. We have seen that happen many times before. However I'm not willing to wait around for such a crappy reason as back door manufacturer/carrier dealings.

    There is such a rift in the U.S. mobile market, between GSM and CDMA, I have some pointless small hope that there is also the chance that the ATT version is the GSM 64GB exclusive and that there might still be a CDMA 64GB Exclusive offered through Sprint. I know it is a long shot. :(

    I'm with you Muffinman, a non 64GB version on Sprint is almost a no buy for me - and if they end up offering even lower storage capacities than 32GB like the rumor above states, then I take that as a real slap in the face. I was all but prepared to go all in and purchase the Black colored 64GB version off contract at a premium and give Sprint and HTC my sale, however they may have lost out now and encouraged me to stand pat or wait for the next devices.

    Can someone across the pond, with an HTC One in hand, test something out for me please?
    I'm wondering if Sense 5 supports USB Host Mode/USB On The Go (OTG) out of the box. This can be tested by plugging a USB device into the Micro USB "power" port of the HTC One and seeing if said device is recognized by the system. The prior generation of HTC devices do not support it, but it has been added through rooting and kernel flashing.
    If the One will recognize a USB MicroSD card converter right out of the box, and interprets it as a flash drive correctly, I may be able to grudgingly accept a lower capacity storage HTC One.
