HTC is getting ready for Mother's Day with a special sale that's already available at its US online store. The offer is clearly targeted toward people wanting to gift a new smartphone to their mothers.
You can pick up an unlocked One A9 for $389, which is $110 less than before. The One A9 version for Sprint is also available as part of this Mother's Day deal, but the price is the same as for the unlocked unit, and you aren't tied to a particular long-term contract with the carrier. Basically, buying the Sprint version just ensures that the phone will work on that network, since the unlocked model only functions on AT&T and T-Mobile. There's no option whatsoever if your mother likes Verizon, unfortunately.
The deal is available until May 8, "while supplies last".
Mother would be like: Why tf you givin' meh phone for? Give meh the damn money and get lost! *true story
HTC, If you want to salvage yourself from the pitiful pit you got yourself stuck in, maybe try to offer promotions such as this one elsewhere. Not only in the US.....
rather give cash than phone. :)
