Looking to get your eager Android-homing hands on the new flagship 4G-ready HTC One sooner rather than later? Well, it’s your lucky day, smartphone fancier! Available on pre-order now from Vodafone, you can pick up the new aluminium unibody all-singing, all-dancing One for free on a 24 month Vodafone Red Data price plan at £42 per month, including unlimited calls, texts and 2GB of data.
Running on Jelly Bean, the One has a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 at its heart, features a 4.7-inch Full HD (1080p) touch-screen display, 2GB of RAM, 32- or 64GB of internal storage, comes with all available flavours of Wi-Fi, is NFC compatible, has Bluetooth with aptX enabled and DLNA, dual front stereo speakers with built-in amplifiers, a 4-megapixel rear camera and 2.1-megapixel front facer and, of course, it comes with HTC BlinkFeed which transforms the home-screen into a single source of automatically updated news and info.
Naturally, other networks are available too, but having just secured itself the biggest slice of the 4G phone spectrum at the recent Ofcom auction for a very reasonable £790 million, Vodafone promises its superfast service will be up and running by the end of the year and that its signal will penetrate further indoors than any other. So get your name down now, because tooling yourself up with this winning combination of the sexy, slick One and Vodafone’s 4G service should see you surging ahead of the rest of the smart-pack.
