New HTC One available to buy minutes after announcement

The Telegraph is reporting that the all-new (and heavily-leaked) HTC One (M8) will be available just a few moments after the launch a week today.

If true, this could mean a major coup for HTC because it’ll be available in shops before the Samsung Galaxy S5 on April 11th. According to the paper it’ll be available from “selected Carphone Warehouse stores” from 4PM on the day of launch – Tuesday March 25.

Handsets, it is stated, will go directly from the launch event to the six nominated Carphone Warehouse stores in London. If you’re eager to get one, we’d advise getting yourself to either Westfield White City, Oxford Circus, Westfield Stratford, Centrepoint and Tottenham Court Road, where the various Carphone Warehouse stores will be having special events to mark the launch of the phone.

An unnamed Carphone Warehouse spokesperson stated..

The HTC One is an award winning handset that set the bar for design during 2013 and made many sit up and take notice – the new HTC One M8 is likely to continue that trend and will cement HTC’s future as a heavy-hitting smartphone manufacturer.

We know how keen customers are to get hold of the latest tech as soon as possible and that is why we are so excited to be able to offer the new HTC One so quickly after it is unveiled.

More as we get it, and we’ll be covering the event LIVE.
