We've already poured some 3,000 words into the HTC One M9 in our massive preview post, but there's still been a pretty large variable missing from that equation: Availability. Looks like we might finally get that answer — at least in the United States — on Wednesday, according to HTC's Jason Mackenzie.

Nothing official yet, but it's probably a safe bet that we'll once again see unlocked and developer editions sold directly from HTC, allowing for easy off-contract purchase while escaping the carrier bloat. Stay tuned this week, folks.
