Amazon has turned its attention to the HTC One which is bound by AT&T and Sprint in the US, a few days after trimming down the price of its very own 7-inch Kindle Fire HD. The phone which has been on sale at $199.99 through both carriers, clubbed with a 2 year service agreement, is now up for grabs via the e-retailer at $49.99.
Variants of the handset drenched in stealth black and glacial silver have each been displayed on the online shopping portal, but it is only the 32GB model which can be picked up at a reduced tag. The scheme is valid for first-time customers and also existing ones seeking a new line of service.
The e-commerce site’s terms differ for the network providers’ users who wish to upgrade to the HTC One from their existing smartphones. In such a scenario, the gadget’s retail value sums up to $99.
Speaking of benefits affixed to the phone, the Taiwan-based conglomerate is offering a $25 Google Play credit on purchase of the UltraPixel-equipped device. However, interested folks will have to buck up, considering that the plan is valid until the end of this month.
Coming back to the current topic, the One smartphone has been made available at a steep rate of $699.99 without AT&T and Sprint service agreements.
