TELUS has posted its HTC One pre-order and pricing information and, as expected, it is $149 on a three-year term and $650 outright.

The phone will be released on the 19th of April, and will ship a day earlier, so ordering it online should get it to your doorstep on either Friday the 19th or Monday the 22nd.

While the One still stands to be the best choice for Android phones in the coming weeks (yes, a review is coming very, very soon) the lack of a black variant or 64GB model will be of some concern to Canadians. The $650 outright price is actually lower than we expected, and should be a good choice for anyone who wants a bit of flexibility — a $35 unlock fee will be all that stands between you and carrier portability.

We’d expect other carriers to come in with the same $650 outright price, so stay tuned.

    Remember the original 4GB iPhone sold for $400 on a 2 year on AT&T? Have things ever changed since then, eh?

  • Croak

    Yeah, and then the massive wailing and gnashing of teeth when they dropped the contract price $200. :)

    On a side note, I’m about to take a 2-year job contract in Malta starting end of this month, so I may run down to Telus next week and buy a One for $728 out the door and unlock it…because it’s €650 (VAT included) to purchase an unlocked unit in Europe, which works out to almost $900 CAD.

    Then again, maybe I won’t, still happy with my gray 32GB Tegra One X after a year of ownership, longest I’ve kept any phone in the last decade.
