HTC One (M8) Available Today at 1PM – Online at All Carriers, In-store at Verizon

Just as we exclusively reported yesterday, the all new HTC One (M8) will be on sale today at 1PM Eastern in the U.S. All of the major U.S. carriers will put the device up for sale through their online stores, but Verizon will have some in-stock, in-store today. That’s right, if you want to get your hands on this phone now, you can.

If you don’t want to go to Verizon, all U.S. carriers will have in-store stock within first few weeks of April. Most in-store before April 10.

“All New HTC One” Inventory Arriving at Verizon Stores, “Exclusive” Likely Only In-store

Sources have informed us that “All New HTC One” inventory is now arriving in Verizon stores, ready for tomorrow’s launch. That lines up with our report last week, saying that Big Red would indeed have stock available minutes after HTC makes the phone official.

With that said, we also reported last week that Verizon would have some sort of exclusive on the device, however, that will likely just be for in-store availability. AT&T and other carriers should have the phone available for order (online or via phone) tomorrow as well, if not within a couple of days.

AT&T is hosting a sweepstakes in which a few lucky folks can win the upcoming device simply by filling out a form. The sweepstakes ends on March 25, so as hypebeasts, we are assuming that could mean the carrier intends to have the device for sale on its network on the 25th.  (more…)

AT&T Moto X Android 4.4.2 Update Approved as Build 165.44.1

The Android 4.4.2 update for the AT&T Moto X has been approved by all parties and should begin to rollout as build 165.44.1. A soak test for the update was scheduled to begin last week, so we’ll just assume that went well.

Motorola posted up the changelog for the update this afternoon, showing an identical update to the other carrier variants of the Moto X, in that it brought cloud printing, better battery life, and fixed an email sync issue. Well, there was one difference – the AT&T model “fixed a bug that caused data connectivity issues for AT&T Moto X users while traveling outside the US.”  (more…)
