HTC One S product page on T-Mobile’s website reveals $599 price tag

htc_one_s

T-Mobile’s web team is a little trigger happy today, updating the HTC One S product page with the phone’s price before the New York city press event which is scheduled to kick off in just one hour. The only new detail revealed on the product page is the $599.99 price tag for those looking to purchase the HTC One S without signing a new two-year contract.

Paying $599.99 for an off-contract device isn’t ridiculous, but we find it odd that T-Mobile would charge more than the current $549.99 price tag most retailers are charging for the unlocked international version of the phone. Keep in mind, the T-Mobile HTC One S does come with AWS band support for T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network software tweaks which gives users access to various T-Mobile services like WiFi calling and T-Mobile TV.

T-Mobile’s on-contract pricing details and the launch date for the HTC One S should be available very soon. We’ll keep you updated as more information is made available.

    Not a bad price for the phone imho. As mentioned, odd that it’s $50 more.

    Does this have the same body material as the int’l ones that have been chipping lately? Pardon my ignorance in not knowing this. :)

      From the looks of it, T-Mobile will only be offering the gradient blue model which is not treated with micro-arc oxidation. That means it should not chip, but I hope T-Mobile does offer the other color once HTC gets the process sorted out to fix the chipping issue.

      Only the black version was micro arc oxidized and those were the ones chipping. I believe t-model is only receiving the grey model which is simply uninody aluminum material.

  • MrMrMan

    Pretty expensive for a crappy phone.

    • jonathan3579

      Just because it’s not the phone for “you” doesn’t make it a crappy device.

  • Alvin B.

    They have to jack up the price so that “Value” plan customers no longer get a deal.

  • Nathan D.

    I really don’t see how T-Mobile can justify that price when the GS2 isn’t even that much.

      HTC One S > SGSII

      • Drew

        If by better, you mean newer I agree.. but that’s about it.

        • jonathan3579

          It’s funny how those who don’t think it’s better are the very people who are stuck with their investment from last year’s crops. Face it, it’s better!

          It just lacks the features many desire – removable battery and/or removable SD card. It’s the same argument that GS2 owners were making about the Galaxy Nexus; it’s “inferior” because it lacks a SD slot.

          Other than the lack of a removable battery and Micro SD slot, it is actually a better phone overall vs the GSII, especially hardware spec wise. The Processor is nearly twice as fast, while using a considerable amount less power, it has a better camera with dedicated processor, and it has an aluminum unibody with gorilla glass 2 display, compared to the plastic/gorilla glass 1 of the GS2. They both have qHD AMOLED screens. Oh, and the One S comes with ICS native, with the capacitive buttons for it. And there’s Beats Audio on board if you’re a bass loving person. Plus you get wifi calling and such.
