The HTC One
has gone on sale in the United States as a pre-order through one carrier, while others are still preparing for their own sales. AT&T
has started taking orders for the smartphone today as promised, while Sprint
will be opening their pre-order queue tomorrow. Canadian carrier Telus
has also announced it will open up sales for the HTC One in the near future, ahead of the phone launch.
Customers of AT&T can choose to buy the 32GB model for $200, or alternatively opt for the carrier-exclusive
64GB model for $300. Tomorrow, Sprint will open theirs up for the 32GB model, reports Engadget
, with both carriers shipping handsets by the 19th of April.

It has a pair of front-facing speakers powered by Beats Audio processing, two microphones for audio recording and improved call quality, and can also act as a TV remote control with its IR emitter.
