Pre-orders open for HTC One in UK, red version spotted
The <a href=" .processor/" rel='nofollow'>HTC One</a> has been made available to pre-order in the UK, ahead of an expected street date of March 15th. A number of carriers, including <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Vodafone</a> and <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Three UK</a>, have started to offer the flagship HTC device, with other retailers also offering an already-unlocked version for &pound;510 ($780) including taxes. Another color of HTC One has also been revealed by the manufacturer. <br />

Carriers offering the HTC One as a Pay As You Go device are charging around &pound;480 ($730) including taxes, locked to the network. Though the &pound;30 discount compared to the unlocked version from retailers such as <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Clove</a> would be attractive to some users, it would usually be a requirement to pay towards an airtime credit at the time of purchase.

Customers buying the HTC One as part of a contract may end up getting a raw deal, depending on the contract's specifics. <em>BGR</em> <a href="" rel='nofollow'>noted</a> that when compared to the 16GB iPhone 5 on an identical &pound;33 ($50) per month contract for two years, the HTC One has a &pound;100 ($150) upfront charge, whereas the iPhone 5 would not. Though not to the same levels, Three provide the iPhone 5 16GB on the One Plan for &pound;36 ($55) per month with a &pound;49 ($75) upfront cost, while the same plan for the HTC One pushes the initial charge up to &pound;69 ($105).

A red version of the HTC One has also been spotted on the company's own <a href="" rel='nofollow'>website</a>. Though no further details aside from the image were made available, <em>Unwired View</em> <a href="" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">speculates</a> that it could be a "limited edition" device exclusive to certain retailers or carriers.
