Clove, a popular UK mobile phone store, has already started to accept preorders for the HTC One. The 32GB model of the HTC One will set you back a hefty £425, or $658, plus VAT. The store does ship to the United States, but charges an additional £16 ($25) to cover shipping and handling expenses. Clove currently has both the ‘Glacial Silver’ and ‘Stealth Black’ color options available for preorder. If you do plan on purchasing an HTC One via Clove, you should expect the company to ship your phone around the 15th of March when Clove’s first shipment of Ones is expected to arrive. If you want your HTC One as soon as possible, we’d recommend preordering now to get in on the first shipment of phones. The devices will be shipped unlocked and SIM-free.
If you’re unaware, the HTC One was unveiled today at an HTC press event. The device features top-of-the-line specs including a 1080p 4.7″ display (468ppi) and a 1.7GHz Qualcomm quad-core CPU. The device is powered by Android 4.1.2, or Jellybean, and has Sense 5 loaded on top. Finally, the HTC One is crafted from all metal materials and is just 9.3mm thin.
