RadioShack Posts HTC One Signage, Tosses in $50 Google Play Credit When You Sign a New Two Year

htc one official2

While we still expect to see the HTC One arrive sometime before the end of this month, that apparently can’t stop RadioShack from the start of their hypebeasting. While in a store, a customer snapped a picture of some One signage, showing off its killer features like HTC Zoe, BoomSound and BlinkFeed

More importantly, it looks as if once the One finally does go on sale, RadioShack will offer a $50 Google Play gift card if you purchase the device on a new two year agreement. Plus, you will get a $10 coupon off of the $199 contract price. Not bad at all.

While HTC might see record pre-order numbers for this device, it is going to be an uphill battle against the Galaxy S4 in retailers.

    I worked at Sprint last year during the EVO LTE and S3 launches. More people were buying the S2, than the EVO LTE. Once the S3 launched, the EVO’s sales came to a complete halt. The same will happen this year.

      HTC is in trouble, if this phone’s release does not go well I believe they are done and are subject to being purchased or worse.

    If you’ve waited this long for the one you might as well wait for Google i/o and see the x phone. This year is going to show us two great motorola phones.

      I think this whole Xphone thing may be a lot of overblown hype. And I really don’t expect a significant phone from Google until Fall…per the usual

      • Bionic

        And no, knowing what I know from sarge, the x phone certainly is overblown hype

        oh believe me………..there will be a bomb dropped in time for christmas :)

      Any nuggets for the day?

      Someone’s hating on you today. Have an upvote.

  • Captain_Doug

    Can’t wait to hold the One and feel the build quality. Right now it’s either HTC One, Xperia SP, or wait for something else.

  • Austin Warren

    People still shop at Radio shack?

      I will never buy another phone there again. I bought my Mom a virgin phone a year ago. She tried it out for 3 days then decided she didn’t like it and wanted something different. When I took it back they inspected it for nearly 30 minutes looking for anything to not accept the return. Then they told me I couldn’t return it in store and had to mail it back to Radio Shack. I’m guessing they didn’t want to have the return count against them. Never again.

      • Austin Warren

        Sounds horrible. Best buy is the best place. Exchange as many times and no questions asked.

        • Butters619

          Unless you sign a contract. I have reward zone silver because they keep extending it but I learned once you cross 30 days from the day you signed your contract, you are locked into whatever phone you have. I swear they used to not do this, but now they do.

          But if you return in the correct time frame, there is no harassment.

          • Austin Warren

            30-45 days is usually enough time to check the phone and inspect of any problems. I remember buying a laptop and exchanging it 5 times to find the perfect one. Quick and easy.

          • Butters619

            Yeah lol. It should be enough time.

        • JoshGroff

          I was told my third return was the last when I was switching phones, could just be the manager at that best buy was just being a dick.

      • rodney11ride

        thats what happens when you get mixed up with a virgin… 3 days aint gonna cut it. lol

  • ßen Murphy

    Ugh, I can’t believe anything I read today.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      I mean the AF Jokes are pretty obvious especially from the tech end

      • ßen Murphy

        I dunno, that Scope Bacon Mouthwash sounds like it could be a reality some day.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Oh yea!… Street Date Here we come!… I want that 64GeeBee though. How is At&t LTE in Kansas City (might be moving there)… Read somewhere that Kansas City has the best coverage for LTE from the top 3 carriers.

    • Bob G

      If you’re going to the right Kansas City, then you won’t have to worry. Just enjoy Fiber :)
