Amazon's resellers are selling the HTC One unlocked for whopping $799. T-Mobile's HTC One will be released on April 19, too. It can't be pre-ordered, but we know it's going to cost $99 upfront with $20 per month for two years. AT&T and Sprint are both asking $199.99 on contract. So unless you must have the Unlocked version, i wouldn't recommend it.
HTC will also introduce a Developer Edition of the One on April 19. This comes with 64GB of internal memory, unlocked SIM and unlocked bootloader, and will cost $649. You should get that instead.
HTC One is the Taiwanese company's flagship smartphone for 2013, offering lots of high-end features, including a 4.7 inch Full HD display, LTE, quad-core 1.7GHz processor, and a 4MP Ultrapixel camera.
Great news for everyone waiting to get their hands on the brand new HTC One. The 32GB unlocked HTC One is currently back in stock on the official store in USA and is available for purchase for just $574.99. Similarly, the 64GB developer edition of HTC One is available for purchase, and costs $649.99!
HTC has partnered with LetsTalk.com for fulfilling the orders. Unlocked HTC One was open for pre-order earlier this month, and there were reports of a slight delay in dispatching the two models. At the time of writing this post, both the versions are back in stock and you can directly place an order with them. Moreover, HTC is now claiming that all orders placed by 2PM PST will ship within 24 hours.

Carphone Warehouse stays true to its word and offers the Galaxy S III Mini with a freebie that even the non-fans would find difficult to resist. Buying an S III Mini from this retailer in the UK will also get you a 7-incher Galaxy Tab 2 for free-no strings attached.
Plans for the S III Mini start at £22 monthly on O2 and a bit more if you want an Orange or a Vodafone plan. This 4-inch smartphone runs on a dual-core processor with 1GB RAM and 5MP camera on the back. Also, it comes with Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2, which may be upgraded to the 4.2 version.
Although the Galaxy Tab 2 is not the latest in the market, it is still a good deal, considering you will only have to pay for one device to get both. Furthermore, the Galaxy Tab 2 is a trustworthy device that is perfect for those who want to try their hand on a capable Android tablet.
According to a listing on Best Buy Canada, the 8-inch Galaxy Note is due to arrive on April 19th and that it will cost $430, a bit more expensive than it is in the United States. Also, if you want to be one of the first people to own the device, make sure to order as early as now, unless you were already wait-listed because there are purportedly a limited number of units and not everyone will be accommodated on the said date.
Although this is good news for those who have been waiting for the Note 8.0, this is yet a tentative date and the official announcement of the release of the device from Samsung has not yet been made. However, since the Note 8.0 has already been launched in the States, the date is most likely accurate and that it will already be available in Canada in a few days.
What's the best way to get to know Samsung products if not to try them out in person? Samsung Experience shops officially open today in New York Square and expect to see Experience Shops across the country in the following months. Samsung CEO JK Shin formally opened the shop along with Best Buy CEO Huber Joly and Bruno Mars will make sure the guests and spectators are entertained.
Some 1,400 Experience Shops are going to be launched in the next few months and Samsung is truly doing all it can to make sure the public knows its products. In addition, this will be a good opportunity to add to the "overwhelming demand" for Samsung Galaxy S 4 before it will be formally launched in most carriers in May, unless, of course, if your carrier is US Cellular. If reports are true that their S 4 launch will carry on as scheduled, then how come all other carriers can't do the same?
Samsung Electronics Co., the world'slargest smartphone maker, said Wednesday that it has decided to buy a 10 percent stake in Pantech Corp., South Korea's third-largest handset maker.
The deal, valued at around US$47.6 million, will help further solidify bilateral cooperation in smartphone and other business areas, it said.
Samsung has confirmed the deal, providing a statement to TNW that explains it will be a passive investor with no input into Pantech's management decisions - presumably to offset any anti-competitive concerns:
Samsung Electronics has agreed to acquire a 10-percent stake in Pantech, valued at approximately KRW 53 billion. The investment is aimed at solidifying our relationship with Pantech, a key component customer of Samsung. Samsung will have no involvement in Pantech's business management in any way or form.
In the domestic market, Pantech trails behind Samsung Electronics Co. and LG Electronics Inc. in mobile phone shipments.
Samsung has detailed the list of services and apps that will be offered for free to Galaxy S5 buyers. Around $600 worth of apps, discounted subscriptions etc. will be available when consumers purchase the latest Galaxy S device.
The bundled services include 50GB of Dropbox storage for two years, a six-month subscription to the Wall Street Journal and a year of premium service with the RunKeeper fitness app.
"We are continually looking for the best partners to help us expand and enhance the mobile experience for our dedicated users," said JK Shin, CEO and president of IT & mobile division, Samsung Electronics in a press statement. "The Galaxy S5 was designed to offer consumers the most advanced tool to help improve their everyday lives. These new partnerships perfectly compliment this mission with a comprehensive offering of some of the world's best mobile resources to suit people's active lives."
