Amazon UK to sell new HTC One on March 15


TAIPEI — Online retailer Inc.’s United Kingdom website has disclosed the release date and pricing for the HTC One as part of the fastest roll-out for Taiwan-based HTC Corp.’s new flagship phone.

Amazon U.K. put up an HTC One pre-order page Wednesday, listing the new device, due to go on sale March 15, at a price of 519.99 pounds sterling. However, Amazon noted that “release dates are subject to change.”
