New HTC One will be available in UK minutes after it’s official

htc One M8 front and rearThere’s very little to uncover about HTC’s upcoming flagship smartphone but now I can say when you’ll be able to buy one.

The leaky Android handset has already revealed its unique duo rear camera, and refreshed version of Sense.

We’ve all seen its familiar aluminium unibody and the announcement of the March 25th event both from HTC itself. Three even confirmed the HTC One M8 name.

And now, thanks to the UK retailer Carphone Warehouse being a tad eager with their press release, I can tell you that the “new HTC One (M8),” will be available to purchase “just minutes after it is officially announced” at six locations in London.

London, 18.03.14: In a retail first, Carphone Warehouse has revealed that the new HTC One (M8) handset will be available from selected stores from around 4pm on Tuesday 25th March – just minutes after it is officially announced.

There you have it then.

The release goes on to say:

…the new HTC One (M8) handsets will be transported directly from the venue of the launch announcement to six Carphone Warehouse stores in London. Westfield Stratford, Westfield White City, Oxford Circus, Centrepoint and Tottenham Court Road stores will all be hosting special events celebrating the HTC launch with entertainment and giveaways as well as the first chance for customers to get their hands on the new device. Carphone Warehouse at Selfridges will also be stocking the handset from the same time.

It certainly looks as though HTC is eager to move swiftly from headline-worthy launch to direct cash-in-tills sales figures.

If it looks, feels and performs as good as the first gen HTC One then it deserves to be a hit.
