HTC One with 32 GB available from AT&T, Sprint on April 19 for $200 and two-year contract

AT&T will exclusively sell a 64 GB HTC One for $300 and contract; T-Mobile to sell device 'sometime in the spring'

AT&T and Sprint Tuesday separately announced plans to start selling 32GB HTC One smartphones on April 19 for $199.99 with a two-year contract. See also: HTC One review: a fantastic high-end Android smartphone.

AT&T said it will be only U.S. carrier to launch a 64 GB version of the HTC One. The high-end device will sell for $299.99 with a two-year contract.

Meanwhile, T-Mobile USA said Tuesday that it will begin selling the HTC One device "sometime in the spring." T-Mobile said it will charge $99 down with 24 equal payments of $20 in a low-subsidy, no-contract plan.

Online reservations for AT&T's HTC One device will begin at 1 p.m. (CT) Thursday.

Online reservations for the Sprint HTC One begin on Friday at an undisclosed time.

AT&T is also offering for a limited time a free (with separate two-year contract) HTC Media Link HD wireless HDMI adapter with the device to connect the phone to an HD TV.

AT&T and Sprint each confirmed that the HTC One will be available in black or silver.

The HTC One runs a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor, sports an aluminum case and has a 4.7-in. full HD screen. It runs Android 4.1 and has a new HTC Sense interface that some analysts have compared to the tiles used in Windows Phone 8.

The device will run on the LTE wireless networks of both AT&T and Sprint (and in seven cities so far with T-Mobile), and has a bigger than average 2300 mAh battery.

Verizon Wireless Tuesday would not comment on its plans for the HTC One.

AT&T posted a short video about the HTC One on its Web site with a full press release.

The HTC One is arriving several weeks later than the mid-March time frame that HTC announced in mid-February.

At the February announcement, one of the biggest innovations touted by HTC was its Ultrapixel camera, designed to take better photos in low light. The camera is rated at 4 megapixels, but HTC argues that it can capture more light and uses fewer, but larger pixels for better shots.

Several smartphones on the market now have 13 megapixel cameras.
