Two UK carriers have announced that they will be offering the new HTC One mini 2 – EE and Three. EE will have exclusivity on the Amber Gold, which along with the Gunmetal Grey version will be available for pre-order on May 23. The phone will ship in June but there's no concrete date yet.
Unfortunately, neither carrier announced a price and what we've heard so far isn't very encouraging – HTC Netherlands posted a MSRP price of €470, which works out to £380. It sounds like a lot, but a SIM-free HTC One mini (the original) goes for £320 at Carphone Warehouse.
Update: Phones4u has published a hands-on too. The retailer expects to deliver the phones by June 13, the device will be free at £25 a month.
Update 2: Carphone Warehouse also put up the One mini 2 on pre-order starting at £21 / month (with a free device). There are offers for both Vodafone and O2.
Oh, man this is too much! I can get Z1 Compact for same price, but far far better specs. If I want same specs I would get Galaxy S3 LTE for 330 EUR from Amazon.de. Yeah it's old model, but still good and with better XDA community.
Phones4U sim-free price is: £359.95 Carphone Warehouse sim-free price is: £379.95
470 euro? It's expensive, with around 400 euro you can get the HTC One m7. :)
