As rumored earlier, AT&T has managed to snag an exclusive on the 64GB variant of the One, and will sell it for $249.99 on a two-year contract.
AT&T will start taking pre-orders for the HTC One from April 4th, while Sprint will start taking them from 5th April. T-Mobile is now the only carrier left in the United States that is yet to announce its pricing and release date of the One.
