Leading up to today's launch, we knew pretty much everything there was to know about the HTC One M8. Everything except its cost, that is. With the covers lifted off the handset, network pricing is now beginning to trickle in, with EE and Three first off the mark.
Three will be offering the HTC One M8 for £49 on four different two-year long, monthly price plans. Starting at £38 a month, this bags you 600 minutes and 2GB of data. For those flushed with cash, the network's premium offering will set you back £44 a month, giving you all-you-can-eat data and all-you-can-eat minutes. All have unlimited texts.
EE will sell the HTC One M8 from March 26th over the phone, and in stores from March 27th. It'll cost £29.99 upfront on a £37.99 per month EE Extra plan. 2GB of data comes as standard, but those that pick up the phone before April 10th will see that allowance doubled to 4GB. And while EE hasn't shared details of minute allowances, it will also be offering a return flight to one of 12 European destinations. Not bad, eh? Trips to Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Paris, Prague, Rome Vienna, Milan, Munich, Nice and Madrid will be available.
Vodafone will be offering the new HTC One M8 for free from £42 on Red 3G plans. This gives you unlimited calls, texts and "loads" of data (vague, no?), while Vodafone will be giving away a HTC Boombass speaker to the first 3,000 customers to pick up the handset.
Those that can face the trek to Carphone Warehouse's London Westfield Stratford, Westfield White City, Oxford Circus, Centrepoint, Tottenham Court Road or Selfridges outlets will be able buy the smartphone from 4pm today too (though the store's pricing has yet to be revealed).
