Big-box retailer says AT&T to join Sprint and Verizon with the new color starting Sept. 15
Best Buy today announced that it'll carry the new blue HTC One — check out our hands-on with it — starting Sept. 15. Best Buy also lends the first semi-official confirmation that we'll see the blue HTC One on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. None of the carriers has confirmed this yet, but we've seen Verizon's in the wild, so there's that.
Writes Best Buy in an e-mailed release:
The award-winning HTC One will be available in a stunning new Metallic Blue exclusively through Best Buy in the United States with the option of 4G LTE service from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon at the more than 1,400 Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores as well as on BestBuy.com on Sunday, Sept. 15.
Update: HTC's Jeff Gordon on Twitter says that the metallic blue HTC One at Best Buy is a bit darker than the blue one headed to Europe, which we've seen.
PSA: The "Metallic Blue" HTC One announced today is a slightly deeper shade than the "Vivid Blue" announced in Europe last week. Not same.— Jeff Gordon (@urbanstrata) September 9, 2013
