The HTC One has won many high profile awards for its forward thinking all-aluminum design. Last weekend they oozed with pride and engaged in some heated Twitter banter with Samsung (see here). In Canada, the HTC One is currently available at Bell, SaskTel, Rogers and TELUS, but according to a thread on XDA Developers reveals the Android Jelly Bean device might be en route to both Quebec-based Videotron and Mobilicity. A long collection of Carrier IDs (CID) have been listed that shows “CA_Videotron VIDEO001” and “CA_Dave DAVE_001.” DAVE is Data & Audio-Visual Enterprises Holdings Inc. and they operate legally as Mobilicity.”

There’s no official word from either carrier, but this is a good hint that they’ll be eventually releasing the One. HTC released the One back in the middle of April and is now fallen to $99.99 on a 3-year, or $650 outright.

We’ll keep you updated on the One coming to other carriers. In the meantime, check out our full review here.

      AWS is supported on the T-Mobile variant.

    My question is how does Mobilicity even have the money to acquire some of these…

    you can also flash the T-Mobile firmware on the htc one we have here, i know 2 people who tried it and it worked on wind…

      Actually with the recent availability of s-off and the use of Qualcomm chips, you can use the HTC one with hspa plus. I wouldn’t fully trust changing radios on a phone, but it is one way of doing it. FYI, the T-Mobile variant does run hspa+ on wind, using it right now 😉

      Can you provide us with instructions or a link to a guide that explains exactly how you got your HTC One to support hspa+ on Wind? It would be greatly appreciated. Thx!

      On my T-Mobile variant, I just unlocked it and done :p .And for instructions regarding normal phones to get aws or hspa+ , I don’t have a link for that. Its still in the works

    Ian, you left out Virgin Mobile. They also offer the One.

    I’ve got that damn upgrade itch again! If Videotron doesn’t get it very soon I’m afraid I’ll have to leave!
