They are selling it cheap because it has only below frequencies:
LTE: 700/850/AWS/1900 MHz (US)
and these frequencies will not work in Europe or Asia.
People please... Here in Mexico, an undeveloped country that is right next to the US the phone will most likely cost about 11,500 MXN which is 935 USD aprox... So, don't complain >:(
phsetaknev, 22 Apr 2013Does the box contain any kind of earphone set, I cant find any kind of information on that. No... moreyea but they probably suck check it out
Chebulla, 22 Apr 2013A very reasonable price. People on Verizon should welcome this news with joy. :Ddo you know for sure if you can use the unlocked versions on Sprint or Verizon
$575 means around £375, but in the UK the best price is £480. So, i am not stupid. I will not buy HTC...
szymon247, 22 Apr 2013Well, it should be even cheaper, to be considerably cheaper than the SGS4 to sell.is this a developer edition of 32GB...
Well, it should be even cheaper, to be considerably cheaper than the SGS4 to sell.
Wtf, 22 Apr 2013WTF! It's actually cheaper than the price you pay in Taiwan! I thought buying it for $693 Aust... moreThey are doing this to sell more phones in usa.
HTC phones have always been overpriced
Does the box contain any kind of earphone set, I cant find any kind of information on that. Not even on the 64gb dev edition, i dont care if it has beats or the normal ones. The order page just says Phone, USB/Wall charger and User guides but what about the earphones??
Thats an amazing price. Does anyone know whether I can buy it in America and use it anywhere in the world? I live in Sri Lanka....will it work here?? Please helpppppp
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2013will this dev edition phone receives quick android update, just like nexus devices?Absolutely not! If you want to get updates, you need to get a nexus phone. All the developer phone adds is that it's unlocked so you can use it with any carrier and the bootloader is unlocked so you can add 3rd party ROMs like cyanogenmod. If you stay with HTC's ROMs, you will get updates when HTC releases them, which unfortunately is often late if at all. What it does provide though (and this is a big advantage), is that it bypasses the carrier's delay in getting the update out. So if HTC were to actually mend its way and provide timely updates, while it would not be at the same pace as the Nexus updates, it may be just a few weeks or a month or so later. But HTC has shown no indication whatsoever in doing that.
So from an update perspective, you really can't beat the 16GB unlocked Nexus 4 for $350.
mcallim7, 22 Apr 2013$575 shoulf be £378 but good old RipOff Uk charges £530This is usually $575 + TAX (15%)
WTF! It's actually cheaper than the price you pay in Taiwan! I thought buying it for $693 Australian Dollar, which is the same price if I purchase it in Taiwan, was good enough. But no, they just have to give the Americans more incentives to buy this bad boy. Sigh, wish I am American too.
