FINALLY: The One 'Superphone' Hits April 23

By Oonagh Reidy | Thursday | 04/04/2013

After a series of delays, HTC One will finally hit Australia this month.

After much speculation (and frustration) about when One would go on sale, HTC made the announcement today we were all waiting for.

The stunning full HD Android phone, which HTC promises will 'disrupt' Apple and Samsung's duopoloy, was showcased to media in February but we had no word about availability.

Until now.

HTC One will be available for pre-order Optus, Telstra, Virgin Mobile and Vodafone starting from tomorrow April 5, and in-store from Tuesday April 23.

Tipped as one of the best smartphones on the market, the 4.7 inch Full HD display HTC phone has HTC BlinkFeed live info feeds, a zero-gap aluminium unibody, an astonishingly good HTC Zoe camera, and BoomSound with two speakers at the front of the Android phone, which comes in 4G or 3G.

The HTC One plans on Optus include $60 plan plus $3 monthly handset fee over 24 months for consumer and business.

But Telstra is going one better and giving those who pre-order One free Beats Solo headphones valued at $199, which together with Beats Audio already on the phone, studio-quality beats.

Telstra customers will also be the first to get HTC One in 'Stealth Black'.

The telco is flogging the HTC One on a $60 plan with a $10 handset fee monthly with $600 worth of included calls and MMS, unlimited SMS and1GB of data, to standard Australian numbers, and several other plans.

HTC One can also be purchased outright from Telstra for $768.

Virgin Mobile's HTC One pricing is identical to Optus on its Big Plan $59 with $3 handset fee, with $700 plan credit, 3GB data , Unlimited mobile calls & text Virgin to Virgin, free voicemail.

Virgin seems to have the best value of the lot if you're a heavy Internet user with a massive 3GB data.

Vodafone are opening online pre-orders half an hour earlier than Virgin at 9am tommorrow for the One.

Plans include $5 upfront on $60 over 24 months includes $700 calls & MMS, 1.5GB of data, Infinite calls to any Vodafone or 3 phones, Infinite TXT here & overseas  - which will appeal to those who do a lot of texting abroad.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
