AT&T Bags a Big ONE—HTC 64GB

AT&T  just became HTC One 64GB Smartphone’s exclusive mobile carrier. Good news for AT&T subscribers,  bad  news for its rivals and HTC?

It seems that AT&T will be “One” step ahead of its biggest rivals T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel, when it comes to HTC’s One 64 GB Smartphone.

Recently uploaded on AT&T’s official YouTube account is a video announcement showing HTC’s One 64GB Smartphone as an AT&T exclusive handset.

What’s so great with the 64GB version of  HTC’s One that is causing too much commotion? Who needs 64GB worth of memory in their Smartphones anyway?

The obvious answer is “everyone”. Everyone who hates deleting photos, videos, music and all kinds of apps and whatnot on their Smartphones would love a 64GB One edition from HTC.

The storage is not the only thing going for HTC One though, this 4.7 inch handset boasts of 468 pixels per inch and a full HD 1080p display. The processor clocks at 1.7 GHz quad-core, .1 GHz ahead of Samsung Galaxy S4. The battery has an above average life at 2300Ah and the said unit sports a 2GB memory compared to other Smartphones who have only 1 GB.

The new HTC One 64GB is probably the only serious competitor of Samsung’s latest Champion Galaxy S4 in terms of specs and price.

AT&T cornering the 64 GB edition of One means that T-Mobile, Sprint and the others will be left with the 32 GB version. A fact that caused much gripe for T-Mobile and Sprint subscribers who are waiting for HTC’s One 64GB Smartphone, but not willing to switch carriers.

That could pose as a bad news for HTC. Unless subscribers from rival companies are ready to jump ship from their current network providers just to get their hands on a 64GB One handset. T-Mobile’s no-contract Smartphones have reeled in a lot of new subscribers lately, so HTC probably lost potential clients in that area.

The much-awaited and controversial 64GB version of HTC’s flagship is finally hitting the U.S market by the end of April, according to AT&T. The handset will be priced at $299 for a 2-year plan.

Meanwhile AT&T will be accepting pre-orders for the 32GB version starting April 4 for $249. A full $50 more than Sprint is offering for its 32GB HTC One handset. No mention as yet when the 64GB will be available for pre-ordering.
